Donation of Quilts

 
Yesterday this HUGE box arrived and it was full of wonderful quilts.  Thank you to the North of the Yarra Quilters for this very generous gesture.  We will make sure that these quilts go to the needy people in our region.  They will really appreciate the warmth and comfort a quilt can bring.

Here is the great pile of quilts just unpacked.  Members of NOTY quilters are to be congratulated on the fine work they do in their community quilting.
 
Our ladies are still hard at it producing vibrant, happy quilts for our flood victims.  This butterfly one will be sure to cheer someone up.



















Angela has put together this beautiful bright quilt using some Kaffe Fassett scraps and other bright and cheerful prints.
 
Here are two more quilts where scraps have worked their magic!
 
Vicki has made a lovely strippy quilt.  She made this one as her house was being cleaned up after the floods.  Fortunately her sewing room was left unscathed.  A real flood quilt!
 
Dianne C made these sample squares up into a colourway nine patch quilt.  The squares were 4" and were found in our donation cupboard.

Thank you to all members who have donated their time, fabric etc. and made these quilts possible.

so pleased to see that our quilts from NOTY made it safely up to you in Toowoomba. Hope that one of my special friends who has joined your ranks is earning her keep lol
