New Years Res­o­lu­tion

Myrtleford Times - - News -

A GROUP quilt-mak­ing project for the Mt Beauty’s Satur­day Stitch­ers has pro­duced at least 16 bright­ly­coloured quilts which will be sent to chil­dren in need.

The project be­gan with a work­shop mak­ing a sim­ple chevron and square block, which was then sur­rounded by a one inch bor­der.

The next stage was a three inch bor­der of Crazy patch­work, fol­lowed by a five inch bor­der with some ap­plique ap­pro­pri­ate to the rest of the de­sign.

The par­tic­i­pants then took their work home to com­plete the quilting and bind­ing.

Eight of the quilts will be gifts for chil­dren be­ing treated in the Al­bury / odonga Cancer Cen­tre, and eight will be sent to drought-stricken Hay in NSW as gifts to moth­ers and new ba­bies in the ma­ter­nity unit.
