Could you make a quilt block or two?

This week my heart just broke when I heard that a sweet little boy who I’d see photos of on Instagram sadly passed away. I loved his cheeky smile and that blonde mop of hair and his mum’s positive attitude for everything. When you become a mum you just become so emotional when anything happens to a child and when you’re a special needs mum well it’s a whole new level of emotion and empathy. We love those little ones so much and invest all of our time and love into them. And the love that they give back is so innocent and unconditional. They are a treasure and we want the best for them in every way.

Now I don’t know the family but I just thought  a quilt for the family would be something lovely. Little Nicholas leaves behind two brothers and I thought a quilt each might be nice if we get enough blocks. I’m thinking blues (any shade), white, red, teal, bit of green and keeping it classic. I’ll do white borders and a bright binding. If you have any blocks (10 inches would be wonderful) or would like to make one and send it to me just message me or leave a comment and I’ll get back to you with the PO box. Someone offered money for postage but that isn’t necessary and if you wanted to make a donation to the family that can be done here (organised by Friends of Zara).

I just about lose my breath and get into a panic at the thought of losing a child and can’t imagine the loss to a family and community. A quilt is made with love and care and something that makes you feel like you have helped in some small way. I know the quilters know that. Thank you xx


  1. I love that you are doing this. I came to know of Nicholas via his aunty’s thermomix website The4Blades, just as he was initially admitted to hospital. I then followed his Mum’s page, saw so many of his gorgeous sunny photos, and was floored when I saw that his fight had come to an end. Just devastating.

  2. What a beautiful idea. I will msg you when I have finished a block
