What a day!

Thank you so much to everyone who was involved in any way with the Quilt Hanging or with making the quilts for those affected by the recent bushfires.  What an amazing effort!

Thanks go to……..

Girls from all over Australia who have sent us fabric, blocks or quilt tops

All the lovely ladies who have pieced, quilted and bound the gorgeous quilts

The people from church who worked in the kitchen and doing other things to support us on Saturday

To Jodie, Kellie and Kaye for lending us some of their special works – just helping to add another dimension to the display

AND to all the wonderful people who came along on the day to help make it the success that it was!  We were truly overwhelmed.   And thankyou for helping us raise the money we needed to make sure all the quilts were finished off ready for distribution.

The winner of the raffle was Marg Flood from Bendigo and she chose the candlewicking quilt….enjoy!

But the absolute highlight of the day was when two young girls who have suffered deep losses due to the bushfires came and chose their quilts – even though we were fighting back tears it was an incredible experience and makes all the hard work worthwhile.  This week we will start distributing the rest of the quilts and there will be a flickr group where you can view them all and will track where they are going  (I will post the link when I get it all organised).
