Australian Bush Fires Appeal for Fabric
I have sent a fat quarter of fabric to this appeal as it is for such a good cause. You can read about it here on Jenny Bowkers blog. Basically a lady called Alice has lost her home in the fires and she is a quilter. So if you can spare any fabric suitable for quilts it would come in handy to keep her active in the next few months, she is also planning to share fabric with a group of other ladies in Buxton. This is the fat quarter I sent.
I know she lost a quilt she was making for her daughter in the fire and it was in blues and pastels, but really any spare fat quarters or fabric for quilts will do. I love the idea of a 'phoenix quilt' group, rising from the ashes too! So dig deep ladies and the address is on Jenny's site if you follow the link above.
