3 July 2023 Request List

Written by AHQ

3 July 2023

Good morning,

Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair and The Australian Quilt Show.

We had a great time at the Craft and Quilt Fair last week. In four days we met lots of lovely people, some who want to join our happy band of volunteers and some for whom we will be making quilts and bags in the future. Some of our recipients came to say hello and some of our volunteers dropped in as well.  It was lovely to meet the delightful Brenda and Deb from Flip La K.  Those of you who came to our Canberra weekend last year and who attended the Friday night function will have found a template from Flip La K in your goody bag, generously donated by Brenda and Deb.  It was wonderful to see the stand in person and especially wonderful to be able to thank them in person for supporting us. I was blown away by the gorgeous blocks they can create.   


Priority Requests

We have three priority requests this week.  Their post by date is 7 August so not too short but I really want to get these in the mail as they are the last of the Op Kudu team and I would hate them to be thinking we have forgotten them.

New Zealand & Australian flags, Country Music, Cowboy, Farming and Hunting. Lean Towards Green and Orange colours where possible (We can supply the two flags) M Q 1
OP KUDU patch, Australian and Ukraine flag, English Landscape, horse and cart (We can supply the Op Kudu patch) F Q 2
Green Camouflage (Army) with some Navy Blue, Skippy Badge & John Deere logo Hunting, Farming and the Army (Rising Sun) (We can provide the Rising Sun, Skippy Badge and some Army camo) M Q 3

If you can help with these please send an email.

Here is the request list for this week. Happy hunting. I hope you can find something that tickles your fancy.


The post by date for all Requests on this list is 7 August 2023 please, or earlier if you can manage this.  If you cannot make that date, please let me know. Do reach out if you have any timing issues and we’ll resolve one way or the other. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss, thank you.

Request Information

When selecting a request, remember, you do not have to include everything they have asked for. Footy quilts do not need to have the logo or even the team’s name. Using the team colours is all that is required. Simple is perfectly acceptable.  A number of these requests have given you favourite colours as well as footy teams or other hobbies and interests. It is fine to make a quilt using their favourite colours and include only one of their interests.  It is fine to keep it simple.

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated….i.e. one of the following please….There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list.

Any queries you might have, please don’t hesitate to contact via the AHQ email as per usual with any queries and we will assist you from there.  We may not know the answer, but it will be our pleasure to research and get back to you.

A reminder, when you are ready to post the quilt or laundry bag you’ve created, please use the PMKeyS number given to you in any correspondence with the admin team.  This helps the volunteer admin team keep a track of what’s been sent etc.  The PMKeyS number is included in the address details we supply for your recipient e.g.  the 7-digit number in bold below.

CPL Wanda Quilt 8765432

TG 3456



Sydney NSW 2890

Also, please use the Aussie Heroes PO Box address on your parcel in the event the parcel is Returned to Sender –  the PO Box is a safe place in the event of  any mishaps with postage.

Aussie Hero Quilts (and Laundry Bags)

PO Box 248

Cherrybrook NSW 2126

Don’t forget to take a photo of your completed quilt or laundry bag to email to AHQ with the name and PMKeyS of the recipient and we can include in the Weekly Dispatches blog and add to the tally of quilts and laundry bags sent off to the troops.  I personally love viewing the photos of those projects dispatched – so inspiring.

If you are using a AHQ supplied prepaid satchel please kindly use the AHQ address for the return address– also for your own packaging – if a parcel is Returned to Sender it is likely we can expedite its journey to the recipient from Sydney.

Please also please hold on to the Tracking number (the pink sticker that you should remove before posting – we’ve experienced mail delays lately (haven’t we all?) and having the Tracking number is very reassuring to keep an eye on the parcel’s progress in arriving at its destination.

Don’t forget, if you look at today’s Request List and need help choosing, please feel free to get in touch to discuss, we will be ready to reply and offer guidance by email. Our goal is to help you find a request that you will be comfortable with doing. If you need a crest etc we may be able to post embroideries / printed fabric images or email some of these to you.

Helpful info may be gleaned here from Information For Those That Sew

I look forward to seeing the photos of completed quilts and LBs when they are ready to post off.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.

For example….

Marvel Theme. Ironman M LB 1

This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request. If you find it hard to copy and paste, please copy or write the line out as above as:

Marvel Theme. Ironman   M   LB   1

Decoding The Columns:

The first column is the theme or preferences requested.

The second column indicates the gender of the recipient:
