This blog is dedicated to encouraging people to make quilts and laundry bags to send to Aussie service men and women currently serving overseas and to express our gratitude for their service. We care about the people - not the politics or the mission.
Our quilts are not works of art, but works of the heart.
Hope you have all had a great week. Hope you enjoy the quilts and laundry bags we have to show this week.
802 quilts and 1061 laundry bags for 2015.
4384 quilts and 6508 laundry bags in total.
Barbara B made the first two quilts and laundry bag...
Made by Queanbeyan CWA with donated fabric from Berrima Patchwork.

Clermont Patchwork and Quilters.
These are two of the quilt tops that has been sent in. I try very hard to keep track of who made what but I can't pin a name on them when they go to the quilters and so it makes it very hard to keep records. If you recognise your top please let me know.
Elise and her Mum :-)
Heather B and Cheryl C- Front
Heather B and Marj T - front
I think this is rather special. Ingrid is a recipient from the past and her husband is now deployed. She made this quilt for a member who is now deployed where she once served. Talk about completing the circle. :-)
Jen L sent this top to me and Cath M quilted it.
I made this one.... had fun with it too
Another of mine
Looks like Jo H had some fun as well.
Queanbeyan CWA group made this one.
Julie Ann made this quilt top and Stephanie T quilted it.
I made this one and Debbie quilted if for me.
Top of the next two made by Lynn and quilted by Debbie
Marilyn S made this laundry bag - we wondered if her recipient is old enough to have used one of these...
This is another donated quilt top, this time quilted by Lisa N
Ruth B - front
Top by Lynn and quilted by Stephanie T (I think - it can be hard to keep track of the quilters too)
Sharon Mc C
Sue G - and what better way to display a bunch of laundry bags than a clothes line!
A lovely quilt top by Pam D, finished off by Queanbeyan CWA.
A lovely donated quilt top also quilted by the Queanbeyan CWA.
Wanda (and quality control agent)
