Arohanui Quilts - still seeking donations

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to the Arohanui Quilts project (you can read my previous post about this here).

I have already collected enough blocks for about 7 quilts, which is amazing.  I've also been given pre-made binding for many more, for which I'm very grateful - it cuts down the time it takes to pull together a complete quilt substantially.  In fact, I think I have so much binding now that I probably don't need any more at this time.  

The two quilts in this post are the ones I have already assembled from  the blocks sent in by lovely kind internet friends, and collected from the generous members of Capital Quilters.  However, I reckon there are still orphan blocks floating around out there that would just love to find their way into a quilt for a child in need.

If you would like to contribute, send me an email or a direct message on Instagram, and I'll send you my address for posting. If you want to share your blocks on Instagram, use the tag #arohanuiquilts and I'll be able to track them down.  I have two sets of instructions - this one with a very basic QAYG block design, or this one with a more complex QAYG design.  Of course, you can use your orphan blocks or any other QAYG design you like - all the information is in the instructions.

Finally, if you don't have time before 1 April 2017, or you're in a location that makes sending blocks to New Zealand prohibitively expensive, please consider contributing QAYG blocks to Alison's Soy Amado Quilts project. You can find all the information here.

Your two quilts look fabulous! Lovely to see my five star blocks in the second quilt. Well done for all your hard work.

Thank you so much for your lovely letter, I was so pleased to receive it. Yes, still in NZ, leaving on 27th March. Sorry, I seem to have misplaced your address so I can't reply to you via snail mail.

This is so nice . Totally loved it . I love reading blogs. Because I am new in blogging and I require great instructional exercise like your post. I think this is engaging and eye-opening material. Thank you so much for caring about your content and your readers.
