Hexagon Quilt for Charity

Vicki added the final stitches to the binding only minutes before this quilt was collected for display at the Australian High Commission. The embassy staff put on a wonderful morning tea in aid of Australia's Biggest Morning Tea for cancer charity. The event was a super morning and we enjoyed lots of home-made cakes and goodies which made many of us homesick. The quilt looked fabulous and we were thrilled that it raised just over $1,500 towards this wonderful charity. I hope the winner enjoys it. No photo available from the embassy as cameras not allowed. We have endured months of dull, rainy Tuesdays which always equals not-that-great photos, so this is the best we could do.
Thank you so much to everyone who pieced hexagons and joined the sewing bees and basting day. Biggest thanks to Vicki for organising us and doing such an amazing job with the quilting. It was great fun.
