What Happened To?

You may remember the charity quilts we worked on based on a pattern from Australia. At the time they had horrendous bush fires there, and we thought we could contibute by making blocks and sending them to a gal who was working on making quilts from them.
Well...it was cost prohibitive to send so we decided to use the blocks and make twin size quilts for Shelter House.
Four quilts were completed and I will be taking them over to Shelter House in the next few days. THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to this activityUnfortunately, this was not the easiest of quilts to make (as everyone who was involved can attest to).


That said, the quilts that were completed turned out very nice and I know the folks at Shelter House will be very appreciative.
I have a complete set sorted, with all the binding cut, ready to go if anyone is interested (beware, this is not for the faint of heart - it is a pretty tedious pattern). Feel free to contact me.
Sorry for the fuzzy photos - not a really good day for taking pictures...

  1. Wow, those do look good! And, yes, they were hard to work on but really turned well. Trying to figure out which one I worked on - but my rows didn't seem to match as well as the ones you have pictured! LOL They will be going to a very good cause.
