There are updates about the project on my blog
I met some quilters from Victoria at our guild meeting tonight. They seemed pretty impressed by all the quilts! Well done everyone!

Group Description

Bushfire Quilt Project

This group is for those of you interested in giving to the devastated people of Victoria, Australia. As you have probably seen on the news the Bushfire destruction has been widespread. With a death toll rising to nearly 200 with countless loss of pets, and livestock and the priceless loss of precious memories left behind for the inferno to engulf. I am proposing we, the Quilters of Flickr, give something to these dear people so they can wrap themselves in our love and prayers as they return to rebuild.

If interested you will make a 12.5 ” quilt block or two and send it to me, where I will assemble the quilt tops, quilt them up and send them on to their recipients. I will be working with the quilt guild here in town and my son’s school to make sure they reach the proper channels. We are stationed in Australia, so you will be sending your quilt blocks to an APO address which is just like sending something to San Francisco (or anywhere else in the US).

The quilt block I am proposing is a maverick or wonky star on a white, light or cream background. That is it…too easy. Here is a tutorial from Quiltville if you are not familiar with this technique.

Thank you so much for your time and attention!

Group Rules

the rules are simple...make a 12.5 inch quilt block or 2 using a wonky star technique on a light background then send the block to me where I will assemble the quilt, quilt it up and send it on the reciepent in Victoria, Australia.

Of course feel free to post your pictures here too!

Thank you so much!
