A Bushfire Salve

Welcome to my entry in this month's Blogger's Quilt Festival
This Polaroid 9 Patch quilt was made with the help of  13 other ladies in my Quilt Club Australia Bee.

The back was pieced using the random polaroid patterns designed by paper piecing lovely Kristy of Quiet Play.

This quilt was donated to a family who lost their home in the Tasmanian bushfires in January. I might be making some more donation quilts because unfortunately last Thursday nearly 200 folks, of my home state of New South Wales, lost their homes in an early season spree of bushfires in the Blue Mountains and the Central Coast. 

I am glad that a quilt can be a salve even if only for a time.

My original post featuring this quilt was back at the end of May.

Thank you for stopping by.

  4. Still love this big time! It's a great sentiment as to speak to creating new memories after such a tragedy. What a gift!

  5. i LOVE this quilt! I would love to attempt a whole polaroid quilt one day!

  6. It's a gorgeous quilt - I find the polaroid style to be really refreshing, and give a quilt instant nostalgia, which may be exactly what that family needs. Great job.
