Charity Makes for 2014.

Yearly count on the charity makes for 1014.
 82 laundry bags, 40 quilts, 64 items for the Angels for the Forgotten charity, including hand made gift bags of colouring books, rulers, sharpeners, crayons, pencils and 40 drawstring bags. 36 Super hero capes and accessories and half  a dozen soft plush toys. I am very happy with what I have achieved this year. On top of that I have made for myself and for gifts 100 Christmas tree decorations, 50 Christmas tree decoration kits, 50 pin cushions to give to the people who serve me in Spotlight and Savers. Also I have re covered 4 swivel chairs and made a quilting table.
I am very happy with what I have achieved this year.

Aussie Hero Quilt In Progress.

 Meggie yesterday afternoon.
 This is the next quilt I have been working on over the weekend.
 The recipient has asked for red, green, purple, beach and rainbow.
 The fabrics have been cut, stacked, cut and re sewn together and trimmed.
 Finished block.
 Sashings and corner stones cut and ready to put together. 2 1/2 inches for the front ones and 1 inch for the backs. I have just seen I have forgotten to make the corner stones for the back sashings. I will be making those then putting them altogether.
This is the back of the quilt. Polka dots, batiks and Hawaiian fabrics remind me of beach wear.
This is the front of the quilt. all the brights in her favourite colours.
I will be assembling them into 7 rows of 4 blocks.
