Di Mansfield lives in City Beach, she is an accomplished textile artist and a proud member of The West Australian Quilters’ Association. Her quilt, named “Mercy Flight”, is an amazing work of art which has sold already more than 6000 tickets and it will be raffled at QuiltWest 2017. The quilt was recently displayed at Central Park in the exhibition “Quilting as an art form”. Di will like to acknowledge, Debbie Barrett who donated the quilting service and Michelle Pearson who donated the fabric and backing. All proceeds from this raffle will be donated to the Royal Flying Doctor Services.

‘In 2011 and at 81 years old, my husband Rob had an accident which left him with 4 life-threatening injuries, which he was not expected to survive. At the time, we lived in north Queensland and without the incredible combined efforts of ambulance drivers, staff at a small regional hospital (which included drafting in nurses from the maternity section to help with the emergency) and the Royal Flying Doctor Service, he would not have survived long enough to get to a major hospital in Townsville. Even then, he was in intensive care for 4 weeks before we knew he would overcome his injuries and be able to continue to lead an active life. He was in the hospital for another 3 months before being able to return home to continue rehab. We owe an enormous debt to the various medical staff and the Royal Flying Doctor Service and this quilt is a very small acknowledgment of our deep gratitude for the assistance we received from the wonderful professionals who came to our assistance." - Di Mansfield
