A Quilt for WIRES

The WIRES Girls with their quilt

Last Tuesday, March 1st, Maclean Patchwork and Quilters welcomed the members of WIRES to hand over a quilt to be raffled. Many members had donated fabric and we held two working bees to piece the quilt which has a theme of ‘coastal landscapes’. After quilting and binding it was ready for delivery. We all  enjoyed a morning tea with our guests and lots of animal stories were shared by both groups. The quilt will be raffled by WIRES to raise funds for their ongoing animal care work. Ticket enquires can be made to Joan Woodmore phone: 66453164.

Have just heard from WIRES that they raised $1500 in the quilt raffle. Also met the winner and she was very happy with her colourful quilt.
