PNG quilt from mystery donor in the USA

I received this beautiful cot quilt yesterday,  from Bonnie in Missouri, USA.  I don't remember having contact with her regarding this - I usually receive emails from donors asking for my address.  Bonnie if you are reading this, please reply to me with a comment here, or direct email, so I can thank you properly.  The quilt is really stunning with wild animal fabric on the front.  Ken wants to keep it for us!!

I asked if any of my readers could advise me how much to charge for making bunting, and Jane suggested checking Etsy.  Thank you Jane - I never thought of that!  I did check Etsy, but the prices are mostly European currencies or American dollars, so I went on to eBay and found lots of Aussie bunting, mostly priced at about $10 a metre.  I'll see what's going on at our opshop later this week, before I decide whether or not to make any more bunting for resale.  I've got other urgent things to do for Christmas first!

Lovely quilt, people are so kind and don't expect thanks. Wherever the quilt ends up I'm sure it will be much appreciated. Sylvia
