Tasmanian quilts handover

Margaret and Darrell Wise from Adventure Bay, Bruny Island in South Tasmania are on an adventure of their own to deliver quilts to flood victims in the Lockyer Valley.

A total of 42 quilts were handed over for toddlers to adults in the Lockyer Valley with a lot of different designs for everyone.

Six were made by Joy Holmes a grey nomad, who brought up some of her works to donate to flood victims.

Margaret said it can take anywhere between a few days to a few weeks to make a quilt.

“It depends on how intricate the pattern is on the top and the experience of the seamstress,” she said.

“All fabric comes from donations or what is purchased by the club.”

One quilt was made by a lady who is 83-years-old.

Margaret represented the Sew ‘n Sews of Bruny Island by donating the quilts to Cr Janice Holstein at a presentation on Wednesday at the Gatton Chambers of the Lockyer Valley Regional Council.
