QUILT BLOCKS FOR AUSTRALIA
When the call came out from the Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild earlier this year for quilt blocks, MQG members made over 150 blocks.
Tree blocks were chosen as the theme of the blocks as a symbol of growth and nourishment and generations of family. We hope the quilts that the Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild finishes and distributes to the many families and first responders affected by the fires.
These photos are the quilts that were pieced and sent along with single blocks.

This top was made with blocks made by students in grade 7 and 8 at St. Louis School and Guild member Pat Edwards.
The quilt blocks were made by Bev Smith a former member.
4 quilters in Gull Lake, Saskatchewan contacted Marlene (they did a google search and found the newsletter that talked about making the Bushfire blocks) to ask if we would include the blocks they had made along with ours. I assembled the top and this is their quilt. They had added small Canadian flags to several of the blocks.
