A QUILT FOR BEV

As most of you know I am a member of Australia’s first online craft magazine…………..The Chocolate Crow Trader.

Sadly we at TCCT have had to bid farewell to our founder, affectionately known to all of us girls as our “Mother Duck…. Beverley Miller, who recently lost her long battle with cancer.

We are looking to all of you kind and generous stitchers out there to help us by making a 8 ½” quilt square and are hoping that all of you will get behind this and send your finished 8 ½” block to:

Country Hart, 26 Jeffrey Street, PORT PIRIE, SA 5540.

There the quilt will be pieced together with all the blocks received and will then go onto auction with ALL proceeds donated to the Cancer Council in memory of our dearly beloved Bev, who touched so many lives in the craft world.

Your blocks can be Block, Traditional Quilt Block, Stitchery, Appliqué……anything and the theme for the quilt will be “HOPE”.

A closing date for receipt of the blocks has been set as 30 August 2008. This will allow us plenty of time to get it pieced together and quilted as we are hoping to get it on display at the SA Quilt and Craft Fair in November, so as to raise awareness of our auction.

We look forward to hearing from you all.
