Bush Fire Quilts.!

After hearing of the terrible fires down south several Lists I am on have started groups making quilts to be given to the family's that have lost everything. I am acting as a drop off point to collect quilts and blocks to be sent to Victoria. A couple of sewing groups I am in have decided to make blocks or quilts. I started the other day by taking wadding squares and fabrics to Sewing group and several ladies there are doing blocks to.IMG_2374 Quilt as you go blocks

These blocks have been trimmed to 11 inches and once joined together will make nice bright quilts .easy to do and fast.

I have also offered to do simple quilting of tops on my frame, so if you have any tops you would like to donate or would like to make blocks, please  email me at  and I can send you postal details. You can also send blocks direct to  Janmac

This is Jan's blog for the quilts htpp:// 

I will be sewing blocks all day tomorrow !!

The message is starting to travel across Canada and some of the ladies are already sewing blocks. I suspect that there will be an international response to the various quilters in Australia that have been offering to put together the quilts.
