Donations to the nursing home in Gisborne

My friend from my Monday Gisborne group came for a visit. Barb was raised here in Mildura and her parents still live here. Since I have spent some time basting a few quilts and have always joined in with our groups donations what was I to do. Her visit was quick and unexpected so I gave Barb 2 quilts to take home and quilt. They were basted so half the job was done.... here are the ones I sent back.

And the story of where it began.

Then there was my Hunters Star quilt.

I'm sure the nursing home will appreciate the kindness of our little group.
I think they have between 15 - 20 quilts so far.
Not bad for a group of 4...
