Last Friday (August 28), a small crowd gathered in Kings Park for the gifting of the ‘Spring into Parks’ banner to the WA Parks Foundation. Stella King, member of the WAQA Mount Magnet Quilt Group which organised the banner, thanked all involved , pointing out that it would have been a much smaller banner had it not been for the “outpouring of joyful and stunning miniature quilts” made by many WAQA members. Kerry Sanderson, former Governor of WA, accepted the banner on behalf of the Foundation. Saying “The Foundation is delighted to receive this beautiful banner. It is greatly appreciated for the creativity and skill that has gone into its making. This gesture from our WA quilters is also a wonderful example of community support for the Foundation’s Spring into Parks initiative, encouraging people to experience and enjoy WA’s wealth of national parks and reserves.” All quilt contributors were invited, and those able to attend enjoyed a convivial morning tea at Zamia café.
