Where are your Stitchin’ Mission quilts now?

It’s taken me a little while to be sure we have permission to publish all these photos of the young recipients of some of our Stitchin’ Mission quilts.

As complete strangers, personally giving the children their quilts would have been far too unsettling for them. Instead they were handed out by staff at the KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning & Care Centre at a special barbecue a couple of months ago.

You can see more photos here.

I hope you agree it was worth the waitSmile

Dartagnan looks delighted with the bright quilt Marilyn made for him.


Noah KU & Church

Like most little children, Noah appears more interested in the wrapping paper on his smaller gift, but I’m sure by now he loves the quilt Coral made for him, with its trains and railway signs on yellow, backed by bright tropical fish.

Isn’t that Moo’s lion folded on Pam’s lap while she shows Noah his quilt? I wonder who Pam gave it to?


And Averil should be very happy to see her butterfly quilt in sweet little Rehanan’s arms.

We plan to keep topping up the kindy’s supply of quilts so that every child who attends can have their own quilt to keep forever.

It’s a labour of love Red heart
