I bought one of the elephant wall hangings off their fund raising craft table and have turned it in to a cot quilt for one of my friends :)

Proceeds from raffling off this ‘plus’ quilt are going to the NZ Red Cross. I used Lauren Grande’s design of how to put it together.

This quilt is destined for the studio wing of the rest home and is based on a photo composition from our back lawn looking over toward Mount Maungatautari.

These fifteen hotties and knitted covers are ready to send to the refugee centre in Auckland. They might not need them until next year with spring well under way. I used the pattern from 28th July 2015.
