1319 quilts and 2348 laundry bags for 2013.
2337 quilts and 3714 laundry bags in total.
I shared this earlier on Facebook but it is worth repeating here. This time last year we had sent off 924 quilts and 1270 laundry bags for the year.
This year in the same time we have sent off 1319 quilts and 2348 laundry bags!
I reckon that is pretty good growth! Don’t you?
Well done all!
Now this one is nothing to get cocky about!
Sorry could not resist.
Well okay, maybe it is. This quilt top is the result of a joint effort. Dasha decided to clean out her stash of greens and made all the wonky blocks, which she was not that keen on as she is not a fan of the wonkiness! I suggested that she put them together in the one top at a sewing day and include an Aussie block as well. Once completed I felt it had a real Aussie look but did not that time to think about it any more before sending it up to Debbie. Thankfully Debbie argreed and asked if she could applique it and look at the results! LOVE IT!
Another of Debbie’s efforts. We have had to blot out the detail on the bottom so as not to give the game away.
Designed by me, pieced by Katherine and quilted, bound and sent off by the lovely ladies of Camden Quilters
The next two were also cut out by me, pieced by Katherine and completed by Camden Quilters!
Embroidery by Michele, navy chaplain’s crest by me, top pieced by Lynn (who has completed 100 quilt tops!!!) and quilted all over with sunflowers by Kym!
Kirsten created this quilt from Block of the month blocks
Louise created the quilt top and Camden quilters completed it.
Lynn pieced the next three quilt tops and Belinda quilted, bound it and sent it off.
More of Lynn’s quilt tops completed by Camden Quilters.
Meg created this quilt top and again, the fabulous ladies at Camden quilters finished it off.
And sadly I can’t work out who made these two quilt tops so if you know please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
Lots of people who came to the dinner in Sydney on Monday were quite taken with Kiwi Karen’s Christmas puddings. The general consensus was YUM!!
Karen has kindly agreed to share the recipe.
