We have sent over 1000 quilts for 2013 -
remember we didn't quite mate it to 1000 in 2012 and it is only just early September and we have done more than a 1000 quilts for this year.
we have now officially sent over 2000 quilts in total!
Great job everyone!
Before we start off tonight's show and tell of quilts and laundry bags that have hit the post this week I just had to share a picture from last night's messages. This is one of the photos that I was waiting for permission to publish. I just figured that nice happy smile was a great way to start the weekend! I think I would be smiling too if I had just received one of Liz's lovely quilts out of the blue! Above the photo is his response to my request to publish his picture.
The tally so far -
I did the applique for this one and Lynn made the quilt top up.
Sandra and Lorraine are responsible for this Wounded Warrior Quilt. These two have been friends for years. Sandra credits Lorraine for saving her life when her Vietnam Veteran husband passed away in years gone by. Sandra has been able to repay the favour more recently when Lorraine was diagnosed with cancer. Lorraine actually had a bunch of these hand made panels and was about to throw them out until Sandra found out about them. There will be more of these lovely panels featured in quilts to come.
How special are they!
I might also add that Sandra was in the process of giving up quilting all together ......... and then she read about us in Australian Patchwork and Quilting and that has completely rekindled her passion for quilt! I have not actually kept count but so far I think she has made more than ten quilts.....and still going!
Aren't we lucky!
