quilts for Vanuatu





Broken Dishes Quilt


There is a group of people throughout New Zealand donating quilts for Vanuatu. 
Cheryl from 'All Things Patchwork' @ Waimauku Village 
is one of the drop off points here in Auckland. 
Fastway Couriers will be collecting the quilts from specified drop off points approx.10th April. 
Quilts required are ones that are brightly coloured, washable and firmly made.  

A quilt I made last year has sat around here waiting for 'a-home-to-go-to' 
so I popped out there today & left my quilt with her.
{oh, and I did just a little bit of 'stash enhancement' while I was there!}

  2. That's a lovely thing to do. If only there were some quilting fairies around to quilt some of my tops.

  3. Great idea - I always think I should have some finished quilts ready to donate at times like this.

  4. What a lovely thing to do. Wish her shop was a bit closer to me ........ not that I need to be encouraged to enhance my stash.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear your thoughts.
Due to Blogger changes, I've heard that a few people aren't able to leave comments here at all. If you find that's the case, you can always flick me an email at linda.dutch@xtra.co.nz and I'll respond from there.
Also, for those of you who are a 'no-reply' blogger, I will respond within the comments section, so please do check back if you've asked a question or wish to chat. Happy sewing!
