Oh boy oh boy oh boy, check out all the fabrics I recently got for use in Aussie Hero Quilts for our Aussie Soldiers serving overseas, in places such as Afghanistan, Iraq etc. If you know of any troops, currently overseas, that haven't heard of Aussie Hero Quilts, and the fact that they can contact Jan-Maree and ask for quilts to be sent to them, please put them in touch with the blog or Jan-Maree....the more that know about it, the better.
The first 5 pics are fabrics that I went and picked up at Berri Uniting Church "Refresh & Bloom" group last Wednesday. I spoke with Helen a week or so before then at my regular quilting group and asked if they would be interested in making some quilts for the soldiers. (The last charity quilts they did, were for the Queensland flood victims last year) Helen took the information I had printed off (I can be quite the good little girl scout when I want to be!) and mentioned to me that she'd purchased a whole bunch of fabrics, and that there were plaids amongst it if I could use some? Me, need 'blokey' fabric....heck yes please.....so I made arrangements to go pick it up. She also had some fabric for sale, but that's not what this post is about.
A while ago, I purchased some fabric for use in AHQ projects, and after discussion with the seller (Linda F) she very kindly crammed the flat rate envelope with fabrics for me to use....as her donation to our service men and women....wasn't that kind of her? Here's a couple of pics of the bag she sent, and also the fabrics laid out on my cutting mat. Thanks heaps Linda xxx
