Since Easter I have managed to work a little bit on quite a few projects;
i) my knitting (needs a final detail constructed before all can be revealed)
ii) the Eastwood wedding quilt (quilting still in progress)
iii) Celtic quilt (still appliqueing)
iv) Animal I Spy with blue sashing - now to be named Katrina's quilt (hand stitching binding down) AND
v) Luck of the Irish quilt (piecing unit into blocks) - makes me sound like housing developer!!
So I am just going to give you a sneak peak of the Luck of the Irish, because you haven't seen it before...
I do however have a finish to show you. Its a bit of a cheats finish, because it was long arm quilted AND someone else sewed the binding on - but its still finished!

We had a great day at charity quilts on Thursday because we got the nicest letter and photo from a family who received two of our quilts for their children. These were two of the twenty quilts we sent to small town outside of Adelaide that was heavily flooded in the summer. It is nice to know that your work is appreciated and it was a very cute photo to the two little boys to boot. We then gave out a further six quilts to a mother of five who was widowed last year and all her family live overseas.
Quilts heal those that are fortunate to be quilters and have the power to heal those that receive them. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful country where nature is our only occasional (usually) enemy.
Happy mothers day for tomorrow and happy quilting, Sue SA.
