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.
Well, this group may be small but
they are mighty.
who do not know of these ladies, they originally came together to assist
Jan-Maree in the early days of AHQ.They
made blocks and sent them to her for use in various requests as they came to
hand.At the time of the loss of JM’s
house (a house fire in 2016) I became the ‘leader’ so that the group could keep a supply of blocks
coming in to meet requests.Bless them,
they do not know what I have in mind when I put out a Call with just minimum
number of details of colour, block size etc.Just quietly, even I often don’t know what the end result will be, but
please don’t tell them.
all that in mind, early in the month I put out a special Call to this lovely
group and I asked them to make me a few blocks to replenish a stash of blocks
that I could use to answer requests as quickly as I could.I gave them colour guidelines and a couple of
tutorials and these wonderful ladies met the brief very quickly and sent me lovely
batches of blocks. It was like early Christmas at my place.
Here are some of their wonderful work on show in recent request quilts.
