A Windfall for QAYG Blocks

IT just keeps coming. Yep weather.... stuff falling out of the sky type causing floods for January. February commenced with a categorie 5 cyclone. All in Queensland.
The rest of the country is experiencing heavy rain which has the potential to cause more flooding . Although prepared there will be loss and an ongoing need. The year we help at home.A couple of quilting windfalls toward helping thoes Australian families.
The strips of squares came my way so I am assembling them in strip fashion (a la qayg). The wadding for 15 of the 20 blocks is left over polar fleece. 10 of the 20 blocks to the stage above. It has been very hot in NSW this week and the second storie sewing room is intolerable so I've moved to the kitchen. More setting up and moving but still.....
The other gift this week is a donation from Forutnes and Fairies of 4 4meter lenghts of fabric for backings and 2 pre-cut waddings. The supplies are arriving and they will be made into comfort quilts.
Have a goodweekend Terry

hi Ter, i feel for you in a 2 storey house, it's bad enough in a single. Sewing in the kitchen is a good idea, as cooking is now reduntant.
Good haul with all that fabric and stuff, we've got plenty to do to take our minds off the immediate weather.
and your fairies in Emerald are loved.

I couldn't believe the forecast the other day, I'm glad it wasn't as bad as forecast. Keep up the good work
