Quilt Aid 2009, Group Visit

A few months ago on some of the designers blogs, they showed sneak peeks of a block that they were designing for a charity project. This project is to start around June. If you wish to read about it and see the blocks that the designers have created go the logo on my sidebar. They look great and all my favourite designers are there as well.
Today, members of the Jimboomba Quilters and Stitchers went to a Retirement Village in Durack to show some of our quilts and other handcrafts, that have been made by our members, to a group of Legacy ladies who reside there. We talked about our group and what we had brought along to show them. The ladies were very interested in how the quilts were constructed and how we went about making them eg did we stitch by hand or machine?, did we quilt them on a domestic machine? We gave them a general idea of what was required as we also took along some quilts in various stages of construction and I think everyone got an understanding of what is involved in making a quilt. The ladies seemed to enjoy the morning as much as we did. It's surprising how many things you have to 'show and tell' when you look around the walls of your home.


  1. Hi Noela,
    Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to the retirement village.
    Found the Quilt Aid site the other day. The blocks look beautiful. Might have a go.
