What I have done over the long weekend.






A while ago while I was blogging I came across a blog (unfortunately I can't remember whose it was) with a quilt for kids on it. This is an orgainisation in the states that supplies fabric to quilters to make up for children in hospital that are there for long periods. I sent them an email and because I am in Australia they would not send the fabric to me. So........ I got onto my other lovely daughter who is living in the states at the moment and she got the fabric sent to her and then sent it on to me. Last week I got an enormous parcel in the mail. (I am still happy dancing about it). In it was the fabric for the quilt plus lots more.

Quiltsforkids.org is a great group - I've done lots of quilts for them! And yes, for those of you who don't know, they send free, pre-cut kits for quilts - you only have to add a quilt batt and ship it back to them when it's completed. I'm sorry to hear they won't ship to Australia, but I'm sure it has something to do with the cost. Good luck with all your new fabric!!

Wow that is a lot of fabric Marg and very kind of you to make some quilts for children in need. It is a shame they don't send to Australia. I love the quilt you did from the pattern Barb sent.
