Aussie Hero Quilts Annual Thank You Dinner…… Festooning the Mess……

Written by AHQ

19 October 2017

I am still trying to get all the posts written to share as much of the weekend with you as possible, especially those of you who could not make it. 
Tonight, I thought I would share photos of the Officer’s Mess once we had decorated it with about forty quilt and I don’t know how many laundry bags. 

An awesome crew assembled at the mess on Saturday morning to help get everything done. All the quilts and laundry bags were tied to railings with lengths of black tape which was sewn on in advance.  It brought the mess to life with a mass of colour and warmth. As someone said to me on Sunday morning, there was a definite “WOW” factor. 

Just an example of the before (below) and after (above)…..


These two quilts were our Auction Prizes but more on those later.

All the quilts were taken down after the dinner and most of them are heading off to the Middle East or elsewhere this week.

Till next time… keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
