WAQA Community Quilts

WAQA call the quilts that are given away "Community Quilts".
It was changed from charity quilts years ago as it seemed more appropriate. Each year our members donate literally hundreds and hundreds of quilts ranging in size from 10" for stillborn memory boxes to humidicrib covers to lap quilts for the Royal Flying Doctors Service to large bed quilts. They go to hospitals and hospices and refuges and foster children and fundraising and disaster relief.


These are just some of quilts on display at the exhibition donated to our program. We have a very dedicated team who allocates quilts where they are needed in liaison with the organisations.
 

I think these quilts are amazing. I love the 3-D effect of the one below.
 
The machine quilting on the quilts is donated in most cases as well.
 
I'm proud to be a part of such a great organisation.

Don't we quilt to share the love?
