From the parched Central West to local

The first two quilts are from Jean at Blackall.  Queensland is 80 percent drought-declared, and nowhere is feeling this more than in the Central West which includes towns such as Blackall, Barcaldine, Ilfracombe and Longreach, to name some of these.  Recently, the Queensland Premier urged tourists to visit the region and spend money in these communities.  Jean's first quilt is being quilted with the petal power e2e machine quilting pattern and the boy's quilt is being quilted with the plush e2e pattern.  The third quilt comes from Kay of Athol near Toowoomba, and this is being quilted with the flower puff e2e machine quilting pattern.

Sashaying in from Banora Point
