50 more to go....

Hi All

Before anything else…… please remember that the quilts and laundry bags are going to people on deployment.   They are overseas for a specific period of time.   Often the only email address I have for them is specific to their deployment and they will not have access to it once they come home.  If you take on a request please note the POST BY date and if you think you are going to have any problems meeting that target please let me know as soon as you know you have a problem. The earlier I find out about a problem the easier it is for me to take any steps that need to be taken to make sure the member does not miss out or that I do not lose contact with them.  Life happens sometimes and it just is not possible to complete the quilt or laundry bag allocated to you in the allocated time.  There is always a solution to the problem – just let me know.

Additionally, I have over 230 quilts under construction at the moment. That means over 230 quilts that have been allocated to various quilters with deadlines for completion.    It is impossible for me to keep track of them though you may, from time to time, receive an email from me requesting an update because I am trying to make sure that my records are up to date and accurate. 

Please, please, when you write to me about a request can you include the name of your recipient and their number (the 7 digit number starting with 8 that just about all recipients have)  That would be really helpful.

I am not going to put the request list out on the blog every week but I would still like to knock over a few more of the 100 quilts for 100 Heroes that I released last week so figured one more week would be a good idea. Let's get as many quilts on their way as we can before Christmas....


Here is the request list for this week.    The names are listed in priority order – that means those at the top are coming home sooner than those at the bottom on the list.

There are two priority quilts on the list this week, A1 and A2.  Why are they a priority?  Because of the location they are in …. Mail can be quite slow and unpredictable.   I would rather see their quilts in the mail sooner than later to make sure they get to them in good time.   The post by date for the quilts and laundry bags on this list is 16 November. For these two quilts that is about as late as I can comfortably go and still be confident they will arrive in time.

Again, the post by date for these quilts an laundry bags is 16 November.    If you want to make a quilt and cannot meet that deadline please do not let that put you off. Contact me and we will work something out.   Please make a note of the relevant date for your request in order to remember your deadline.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.  This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.

B=both quilt and laundry bag
Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag

Requests in pink are for girls.

This is not all the people that are waiting for quilts but these are the priorities for this week.  That said, if you are working on a quilt and are looking for a recipient for it, and there is nothing on the list that matches, please email me a photo or description of the quilt as I may have a request coming up that fits. 

Remember, you do not have to include everything they have asked for.    Footy quilts do not need to have the logo or even the team name. Using the team colours is all that is required. Simple is perfectly acceptable.  A number of these requests have given you favourite colours as well as footy teams or other hobbies and interests.    It is fine to make a quilt using their favourite colours and nothing else.  It is fine to keep it simple.

If you just want to make laundry bags please email me.   I will ask that laundry bags have initials on them but other than that you need to let me know if wish to further personalise the bags with themed fabric or just use what you have. Also you need to let me know how many you would like to make.

Don’t hesitate to come back to me if you have any questions.
