The Girls from Hibiscus Quilters ..

..came to visit us, bringing along a feast of Show and Tell of some of the wonderful quilts and rugs that they have made for their selected charity 'Laurel House', a refuge for sexually abused children on the Sunshine Coast.
Val, who formed the Hibiscus Quilters a few years back, told us that to date they have made 464 Quilts and rugs, 328 Bags, 240 Toys, stuffed, knitted, etc, 67 Worry Bags and 121 Hand Towels and Washers.  Plus they have raised $500 from raffles.
What a great job, so with thanks to Lorraine for the pics, here are the quilts the group were treated to.

Whereabouts are the Hibiscus group located?? I'm eager to clean out my stash, and this could be a worthwhile group to donate the excess fabrics to!
