Victorian Quilters also seek blocks for Quilts

26 01 2011

Further to a number of previous posts, I mentioned that I would let you know when I heard about requests for support for Victorian flood victims.  In the first instance, Jenny Bacon and Wilma Ladiges are collecting orphan blocks and quilt tops for the residents of Carisbrook where 200 homes were inundated.  They want to make a quilt for every home in this town.

Details of where to send them are Wilma Ladiges; PO Box 91 Carisbrook VIC 3464. 

If you want to make blocks specially for this cause, they seek 12 inch Rail Fence Blocks.  This is what they look like if you want to make them:

they are very simple to make.  Choose three fabrics and cut a 2.5 inch strip out of each fabric.  You will need at least 26 inches in length.  Stith the three strips together with a quarter inch seam, press and then cut into four 6.5 inch lengths.  Stitch the four units together to make the block.
