Aussie Hero Quilt Requests 26 March 18


Hi all
As I write this I am in Adelaide, due to fly back later this morning.  I don’t get home til later in the afternoon so will be catching up on emails as soon as I get back home.  It has been a great trip to South Australia, catching up with quilters and recipients, and speaking at the Orroroo Rural Round Up.

Priority items
The last quilt for HMAS Warramunga is No 2.  The post by date for this week’s priority requests is 16 April… there is now no leeway.   I can send you an RAN crest and Warramunga Crest if you like.

Numbers 3-24 really need to be in the mail by April 23 in order to be sure they will make it to their recipients in time.   It would be wonderful if you could look at these requests when choosing one to make if you possibly can please.

Email me if you have any questions regarding them.

Post by Date

The post by date for ALL items other than the priority requests on this list is 30 April please.

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. 

For example….
Marvel Theme. Ironman     M       LB      1

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.  If you find it hard to copy and paste please copy the line out as follows…  

The first column is the theme or preferences requested.
The second column indicated the gender of the recipient.
The third column is as follows.

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
F= female
M= male

The last column with the number is a simple registration number for me to use… it is only relevant for this week only and will change if the request is still on the list next week. Once you have received the recipient’s details you will need to use those to refer to the recipient from then on if need be.


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.
  
If you don’t understand what people are asking for or where to get some of the bits and pieces then please ask me but the following might also be helpful.

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

Rising Sun, RAAF Crest, Navy Crest, Coat of Arms, HMAS Warramunga crest and other badges – ask me about them, I can often send you some to include if your request needs them.

I have Afghanistan Flags I can send you… other flags are either easy to piece or can be printed… ask me.

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

I can help you with football colours and logos of teams etc. Just ask me. Most of the logos are simple or you can just add team names if you want to … team colours are enough also.

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.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers

Jan-Maree
