Bushfire Quilts Update

Firstly a huge thank you to everyone who has been involved in our bushfire blocks. The response was amazing. We gave away more than $600 worth of fabric for the blocks.

Here are some photos of what people have put together. The thoughts behind the designs were touching.

Don't forget if you have completed your blocks post them to:
Carol Freedman
PO Box 243
Barnawartha VIC 3688
Carol has a committee of four ladies who are co-ordinating the assembly of the quilts. On the 21st of March they will be putting them together in a local hall.

If you are interested in helping could you please contact Carol directly on 02 60 267 02.

If you would like to help a crafter who has been affected by the fires, Victoria's state quilting guild is organising distribution of quilts and sewing packs to bushfire survivors.

They are co-ordinating the distribution of sewing packs consisting of fat quarters and general sewing supplies. If you would like to help a crafter re-stash send your items to:
Vic Quilters Bushfire Quilts

Thanks for showing our blocks. I wish Carol well in putting them together. I hope she can post some photos of the completed quilts.
