Requests 9 January 17

Hi all

NOTE – if you receive this via email DO NOT try to reply to me via email. You need to use friendsofAHQ@gmail.com

Urgent ones…  YAY!! No urgent ones this week….

Wonky blocks
This is something new.  Recently Ann sent me a gorgeous sent of wonky blocks, enough for a whole quilt, that we were able to use to complete an urgent quilt.  (see picture)  



I would love to have some more of scrappy blocks on hand.  If you would like to sew some and send them in that would be great.   The blocks I would like are random log cabin.  A tutorial can be found here.  This block is a little less wonky than the wonderful ones that Ann did but also a great way of using up scraps and can be paired with all sorts of requests to personalise quilts in a hurry.

No specific colour requirement but please make them bright, cheery and multi-coloured.  

Scraps of Aussie flag or Aussie themed fabric are particularly welcome.

Please post them to 

PO Box 248, Cherrybrook,  NSW  2126

Laundry bags…
There is a large laundry bag list this week… it is at the BOTTOM of the list so don’t forget to look for it.

Post By Date
The post by date for the rest of the requests in this week’s list is 13 February.    PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss.

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 (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)

Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag
Requests in pink are for girls.

NOTE
Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.

Rising Sun and other badges – ask me about them, I can often send you some to include if your request needs them

If they want some text and it is too much for you to applique I can get it embroidered and sent to you if you like to be sewn on the quilt or sewn into it.

Please think about what the request involves before you take it on. Google, ask questions, email me, make sure you can complete it to your satisfaction before you commit to it if possible please.

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated…. ie one of the following please….  There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list.

A quick note… even if you check the request list every week, please take the time to skim over this preamble.  I edit it to make it relevant every week and I know that many of you are not reading it by the questions I am being asked. It takes you just a minute or two to scan it but takes me considerably longer to read and answer the emails I receive ….. please give me a hand in this. Your assistance is appreciated.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers and happy stitching!
