Koala Love UPDATE








After receiving an email request for a Koala pattern, I showed you my first finished block in this post, and told you all about my plans to donate 50% of the proceeds of the sale of this pattern to help the koalas in Australia. And now the quilt is complete. So I wanted to give you an update.





First the finished quilt details.....





"Koala Love" finished at 50" x 50"








The Koala blocks finish at 14” x 14"




I used this Holiday Sparkle fabric I have had in my stash for years for the backing.










Although I truly enjoyed choosing fabrics from my stash to make the Koala Love quilt, I gotta admit, I also had fun changing it up so you can make this pattern look different every time!


















Click here to buy the Koala Love PATTERN.











I also have the finished quilt listed in my shop. Click here to buy the Koala Love COMPLETED QUILT. $100 from the sale of this QUILT will go directly to the Australian Koala Hospital.












As of the end of November, in 3 days, we had raised $418.25 to be split between NSW Koala Hospital and Rural Fire Services Australia. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!

Withing the next 4 days, we raised an additional $233.50, for a total of $651.75.

It is my goal by the end of 2019 to reach a grand total of $1000. 

Sometimes we are faced with things that seem impossible. But with LOVE.... ALL things are possible.

Koala Love

First of all, I got this email from my lovely friend Kathy....



Hi Lorna,

I hope you are well! I was wondering if you had any plans on creating a Koala bear pattern? If you are, I know you can’t tell me, but I hope you do! I have read about the devastating impact of the Australian wildfires on the Koala bears and I thought I would love to make a quilt with Koalas on it for a dear Aussie friend.

Hugs,

Kat Potter

Maple Ridge, Bc






So I did.....






The Koala Love blocks are all finished, but I have not sewn them up into rows yet!











The Koala Love pattern is now listed in my shop.




After seeing the suffering that the Koalas and others are enduring in Australia, and having seen the links provided by Kristy Lea of Quiet Play on her InstagramI have decided to contribute 50% of all sales for this Koala Love pattern, for the rest of 2019, to be donated to these two services:



Koala Hospital of NSW-Australia.


NSW Rural Fire Service.









Sometimes we are faced with things that seem impossible.

But with LOVE....

ALL things are possible.

I feel a bit like Rip Van Winkle.

I just woke up and all of a sudden......


It was WINTER.

This winter I am highlighting some posts from Christmases past.
