Some great messages here, enjoy!
Firstly, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou for the wonderful quilt. I had no idea what to expect when I first ordered it. When I opened the box and unfurled the contents for the first time I was immediately filled with joy and excitement - you definitely made my day with this wonderful gift.
More importantly, however, I have to thank you on behalf of my mates onboard who took great pleasure in seeing that you understood the 'pineapple' reference and life in the ADF. We use it more as a joking phrase when days are tough but whenever we have hard days we just look at the quilt and smile. So already, your gift and small sacrifice has made more than one person's day/s brighter.
I cannot get enough good coffee whilst on deployment so the small treats are definitely greatly appreciated. It is through people like you that makes ADF service that much more rewarding.
Once again I cannot thank you enough for this gift. I hope you are well and keep up the fantastic work with the Hero Quilt team!
First of all thank you for your amazing quilt. It shows that a lot of time effort and skill was used to make this gift for someone that you have never met. Which says amazing things about yourself and your wonderful values. So thank you
Your gift of the quilt was very timely and has made my time away from home much more bearable. Know there are people who even though they have never met me. Take the time to put so much effort and time into making something so beautiful as the quilt I received was an amazing feeling and I can't thank you enough.
That you normally only quilt for family and close friends makes this gift even more special.
The sourcing of material is an amazing effort and even though it arrived to late i do hope that it helps with your collection of fabrics. Your addiction to different fabrics I'm sure just makes your quilts more unique as they are already amazing.
I love the movie Dead pool it is my second favourite movie and my favourite character, my favourite move is a Sci-fi flick called Fifth element. But this just goes back to the face that I'm a nerd.
First off let me say, I have received the quilt you have made me and a massive thank you is in order.
Hands down is one of the nicest things I've ever been given and will be cherished more than words could ever say.
The work you have put in and love behind it, is matched by my love of it, its going to become a piece in my collection to be put on display to give you an idea of how much I love it.
I love how all the jordans you have sewn on to the quilt are all some of my favourite retros and again I'm really pretty much speechless and bumbling on cause of it :D
I'm glad you got to see a little insight into one of my greatest passions (obsession) with the Air Jordans and sneakers in general
In your letter you told me a little about yourself, so i thought id give you a little insight of me
So again thank you very much and thank you to your husband Chris for the lovely package, the biscuits were very well received and eaten quite fast
Firstly thank you so much for the gifts and all that you put into it.
They are absolutely gorgeous, and I will treasure them dearly.
I'm going well over here, at the moment and giving it all I can to do a good job. First recipient eh, lucky me! Did a banging job at it.
I was really curious to see what the outcome would be when I put so many ideas down, and I must say (even if you did see a smaller design on Pinterest) you've done really well!
I was going to send a letter but honestly cannot wait the weeks it takes to get to you and what you've done is just a beautiful thing.
From the bottom of my heart thank you so much, bless your cotton socks and keep up the fantastic work. It's the small things over here that make it bearable at times!
I received my quilt the other day along with a flag & some chocolate, thank you.
I enjoyed the chocolate & have donated the flag to the Anzac ward to be added to the other Australian military memorabilia. I hope that this meets with your approval.
I was thrilled with my quilt. I appreciate the Red Cross in the centre, it was exactly as I had imagined it would be like. I will take it with me next time I go to sea.
Your efforts are very much appreciated.
The internet is a bit hit and miss over here & I have had trouble attaching the two photos of me with the quilt & the flag.

Would like to thank you so much for our Laundry Bag, Quilts and box of goodies. It was an awesome surprise when we pulled into port and got all our parcels.
Your parcel was the first one I opened and I was ecstatic to see the quilt and the goodies as well. The socks fit by the way.
It's great to know that there are people out there that appreciate the work we do and the sacrifices we endure. I'm really looking forward to getting home and seeing my new niece which was born whilst i was away on my birthday. My wife will really like the quilt to keep her warm during the Perth winters as we struggle a bit being from Darwin.
Again thank you from the bottom of my heart and thank you to your organisation for bringing smiles to everyone.
Thank you very much for the lovely laundry bags. My team and I will find them a nice home when patients come through. It will be a lovely comfort for them when they are sick/injured and so far from home or any comforts.
I cannot believe that WA had their coldest winter in 30 years. I hope it has started to warm up for you. In the last week, the temperature has dropped here. You can feel the chill of winter in air. Like you, I do not like the cold (I run cold naturally) but I have my fingers crossed for a white Christmas here.
Thank you very much for the lovely treats in the box. The biscuits and lollies were very appreciated by the whole team.
Greetings from the Middle East. I wanted to send my thanks and appreciation for the laundry bag and quilt. lt provided such a boost after being out here for such a long time. So thankyou so much I can only imagine the time and effort that goes into something like this and I really love them. They are already getting some heavy use.
Onboard the ship we get into quite a standard routine which for me consists of L or 2, 4 hour
watches a day on the bridge followed by anywhere between 1-5 hours of administration and I have been able to get in one PT session per day at them moment which keeps me sane. The crew onboard is great to be a part of and makes it much easier to be away from our families for such a long period of time.
I am a big fan of the AFL and obviously a North Melbourne supporter since I was 6. I started
supporting them after winning a competition to run out with the team at the first ever AFL game in Canberra. So that was very exciting and started of my love for footy.
Again l wanted to say thankyou for the wonderful laundry bag and quilt I really appreciate it and it will get a lot of use during my time in the Navy and beyond. Thank you for all the effort that you have gone through to get this to me. lf you are ever in Sydney please look me up and hopefully l will be able to give you a tour of the ship (or different ship if I happen to move on, this one only has about a year left) and say thank you in person
