Updated Request List 8 March 17


Hi all

Well you guys are AMAZING!!!   I asked you to help out and share and you did not let me down. It is 1130pm as I write this and I have been answering emails, Facebook comments, and Private Facebook messages pretty much since the blog posted.  The post has been viewed over 35000 times, shared over 500 times and there have been soooo many comments.  Thank you. Lots of new quilters have jumped on board too. Thank you thank you thank you. 

I am updating the list to make it easier for everyone to see what requests are still available. Trust me, there are plenty... this is not even all of them.

So here we go... the updated request list.......

REMEMBER... you do not have to include EVERYTHING they have asked for.. they are not expecting you to.

NOTE – if you receive this via email DO NOT try to reply to me via email. You need to usefriendsofAHQ@gmail.com

Male and Female

To make it easier with my spreadsheet, you will see I have a new column.   Male is now denoted as M and female is .... surprise, surprise, F.    No more pink for girls.

Random laundry bags
Again, this is not a call for Random laundry bags but if you have made some and are waiting for me to give you names please let me know. It is really hard to keep track of things like this and so I am sure that some of you have slipped through the cracks .

Random Quilt tops
As above with the quilt tops. I am not calling for quilt tops but if you have one and are waiting for me to give you a name for it please let me know.  Once again, I am sure that some of you have slipped through the cracks.

Post By Date

The post by date for these quilts and laundry bags is 12 April please 

PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.  
For example….
- RAEME              M           LB           1D

This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.  If you find it hard to copy and paste just let me know.

B=both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)
Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag

NOTE
Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.
Rising Sun and other badges – ask me about them, I can often send you some to include if your request needs them.

If they want some text and it is too much for you to applique I can get it embroidered and sent to you if you like to be sewn on the quilt or sewn into it.
I can help you with football colours and logos of teams etc. Just ask me. Most of the logos are simple or you can just add team names if you want to … team colours are enough also.
Please think about what the request involves before you take it on. Google, ask questions, email me, make sure you can complete it to your satisfaction before you commit to it if possible please.

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated…. ie one of the following please….  There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list.

A quick note… even if you check the request list every week, please take the time to skim over this preamble.  I edit it to make it relevant every week and I know that many of you are not reading it by the questions I am being asked. It takes you just a minute or two to scan it but takes me considerably longer to read and answer the emails I receive ….. please give me a hand in this. Your assistance is appreciated.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers and happy stitching!
