2015 NOTYQ Raffle Quilt
“The Blue Bird of Hope”
This quilt was made by many people, united in a love of
stitching and quilting, along with a desire to raise funds to
support charitable organisations. It started as a project by a
group of friends, The Village Quilters. When the group
disbanded the blocks went to NOTYQ member, Dianne
Bannister. Dianne kindly donated them to our Community
Quilts program, along with a sum of money from the group
to contribute to the quilt’s completion.
It was decided that completing the quilt and raffling it, with
the proceeds being donated to Banksia Palliative Care, was in
line with the spirit in which this quilt was started.
The quilt was quilted by Leanne Kaufmann
of Leanne’s Quilting Services.
The Quilt Exhibition Committee wishes to thank everyone
who has helped in the making of this beautiful quilt.
