Yesterday I also got an email from Jess (from The Elven Garden) who said:
"In the last week, we have had some major bush fires in Tasmania, and over 200 homes have been destroyed or severely damaged. I'm organising a quilt appeal to donate quilts to the kids who've been affected by the fires."
All the pertinent information is in this blog post: http://theelvengarden.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/tassie-bush-fire-quilt-appeal.html"
Fantastic work Jess! I've been waiting for someone to organise something like this. The fires continue to burn around Australia and there is a great need out there. I want to donate something, so I thought I'd make up a baby quilt for the quilt appeal while trying out my design.
Here's the first option using some of Aneela Hoey's fabrics with a pale pink background.
And then by just switching some of the blocks you get option 3, a more zingy, random design.
The first one is more calming and the other more fun I think. I might be leaning towards the first.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the devastating bush fires. If you would like to donate a quilt or money please go to Jess' blog to get all of the information.
