On Saturday morning the quilts collected as part of the Wooloroo Fire Relief Quilt Drive were put on public display. Quite a few people ventured to Gidgegannup to view the wonderful quilts, although not all were able to be shown, as the generosity of quilters was so great that the number of quilts totalled close to 850.
Affected families were given the opportunity to select quilts Saturday afternoon or Sunday. It was a privilege to assist individual family members in finding that special quilt amongst those on display. The thought of all the time and effort that had gone into making the quilts made quite an impression on those that came to collect quilts. I was asked to pass on their thanks to the quilters for their generosity in providing such wonderful items.
A big thank you to all those who contributed in any way in making these wonderful quilts that provided such joy to those families affected by the bushfires. A very big thank you to Fleur and Nicola for all the work that went into the organising, planning and conducting the Quilt Drive.
