Quilting with Chalk

A new kind of rainbow connection is helping people show how much they care for each other, even at a distance.

A Facebook group called Rainbow Trail Australia is inspiring colourful artworks across the nation to "spread some joy during these testing times".

The group was created on March 21 and has gained more than 120,000 members within a fortnight.

Members are encouraged to draw rainbows on streets and footpaths, or to produce other colourful creations, to brighten people's day in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and associated social-distancing rules.

One Instagram mum has switched things up by introducing her daughter to quilting with chalk. What better way to get your kids outside getting some vitamin D and off computer screens.  We have a great range of washable, dustless chalk in all colours of the rainbow as well as masking tape to map our your quilt.
