Our group has been very ac­tive mak­ing quilts for the ‘Aussie Hero’ in our de­fence forces. So far we have de­liv­ered 8 and another 5 are on the way to the Aussie Hero’s co­or­di­na­tor. We have also do­nated a bolt of bat­ting as some quilts made by other groups are just the top layer and are fin­ished off by us be­fore be­ing sent abroad.

The photo shows one of the “Hero” quilts made by our group. We have a monthly as­sign­ment and this is to make a block. The com­pleted blocks are sashed, a bor­der added to make them to the spec­i­fied size, then bound off, ready for de­liv­ery to the co-or­di­na­tor.

We have also do­nated quilts to the Rid­ing for the Dis­abled, Make a Wish Foun­da­tion, Bupa at Round Cor­ner and Our Lady of Grace on Old North­ern Road to name just some of the es­tab­lish­ments and char­i­ties we have sup­ported over the years. The do­nated quilts are used for fund rais­ers.
