Aussie Hero Quilts and Laundry Bags is designed to encourage sewers to make quilts and laundry bags for our Aussie servicemen and women currently serving overseas. We care about the person, not the politics or the mission. The Friends of Aussie Heroes are spread all over the country. Our quilts and laundry bags are gifts to say thank you to the serving member for their service and the sacrifice that service asks of them and their families. We send items in response to requests from serving members or their loved ones – spouses, family members and friends. Many of our quilts are personalised though not all of them. Our quilts are not works of art, but works of the heart.
If you can only make one quilt that could be the quilt that turns up somewhere when someone really needs a boost. If you are able to make complete quilts from start to finish, or if you can take a quilt top and turn it into a quilt – we need you. If you can take a set of blocks and put them together with some of your own stash to produce a quilt, we need you. For quilt specification please click HERE
Laundry bags are easy to make -if you have been thinking about getting involved with AHQ but don’t want to quilt – then make a laundry bag, choose some bright colours from your stash and go for it. For Laundry Bag specifications please click HERE
