On Wednesday night at my sewing group, over 30 of us embarked on an Honour quilt. This quilt will be made of 49 blocks(6.5") each one dedicated to people that left the areas of Wallan, Kilmore,Pyalong, Broadford etc to join in the war. Many of these were young men and sadly they didn't return.Ernest Brown's block
With each pattern we are given a brief history of the person that the block is for and some of them are heartbreaking.
I aim to make my quilt so that a rainbow surrounds the centre block which I think will have butterfly fabric in it somewhere.I think that this will be a very emotional journey but I'd like to say a big thank you to Maree for allowing me to share in this and I think at the end of the year there will be some amazing quilts made in honour of some very special people. May we never forget the sacrifices that some made so that we may be safe.
