The tally so far-

 20 quilts this week and 28 laundry bags.

280 quilts and 650 laundry bags for 2013

1281 quilts and 2015 laundry bags in total.

Woo Hoo  – finally notched up 2000 laundry bags!

These first three quilts were made by Annette, Lynn V and Carol Mc.  Annette and Carol both live in QLD.  Carol is Annette’s friend and mentor and together they are making the quilt tops using a stash of donated fabrics.  Lynn is one of Annette’s sisters and she has a longarm quilting business in VIC and Lynn quilted two of the quilts and donated the third!  Don’t you wish you had a sister with a long arm quilting business and a friend with a stash of donated fabrics.  Lucky Annette!

Now talk about a coincidence.  I gave Annette a name to send a quilt to – let’s call her A.  After she had posted A’s quilt Annette sent me the following messages – 

I found out that A is the sister of a girlfriend of mine..   how amazing is that.  I didn’t say who I was posting too, the friend said she had requested a quilt for her sister and wouldn’t it be funny if she ended up with one of mine…   I asked her her sisters name.  There can’t be that many A’s over there…  or heading over there very soon….    lol..
