I'm a lucky duck!

I'm so lucky to have been given a sneak preview of the Quilt Aid project "Bluebird of Hope", you may have seen a few tidbits popping up in blogland about this exciting new project! There's 12 well known Aussie Designers and 12 Aussie Quilt Shops all taking part and believe me when I say that this is going to be fantastic!
It's co-ordinated by Helen and I must say she's done a terrific job getting everyone on board. The fabric range being used is Satchet Pot Pourri, aren't the colours just devine!!

Now the most important piece of info about this project is that the funds raised will go to a World Vision project - Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia. The project goal is to provide services for those suffering from childbirth and related injuries, rehabilitating them to the point where they can be intergrated back into society with dignity and a sense of self worth.

So if you find yourself looking for a new BOM then look no further as this one is truly worth doing, you'll not only finish up with an exquisite quilt but you will have helped a worthy cause. It commences in June so if you're interested you can register online here and get in first!!

Ooooh, I'm getting BLUE with envy ;o) ...the quilt must be gorgeous, I already read on several designer's blogs about the project...but they can't show it yet either *sigh*.
Somehow I can't open your link to quiltaid...
I'm so curious about the BOM...but maybe I shouldn't look too close if I don't want to end with yet another great project *g*.
Have a great start into the new week.
Hugs, Julia
