Victorian Bushfire Relief Quilt Appeal

Australian Quilters have a challenge to make 7,500 quilts for the Bushfire Relief. It's something we can do that uses our skills and love of quilting. As I was heading off the Melbourne for the Austrlaina Quilting COnvention and had room in my suitcase I had room for a few that were in my "Quilt Bank" (cupboard in Nic's bedroom). I chose quilts that would be suitable for men and older boys. I hope they are loved!

LPQ Raffle Quilt for our exhibition in September

Quite a few years ago a beloved member, June Moore passed away. Among her quilting items given to the group was this pattern by The Rabbit Hutch. I popped it away thinking it would be a great group quilt for future fundraising. 5 members made the quilt and we proudly showed it at our last meeting day. Everyone is really pleased and many reckon it's the best we have ever done! :-)
