This is the quilt I sent this week to a Australian Defence force member serving overseas.
It felt good to finish another Aussie Hero quilt and have it posted off. However I did decide that I would have a go at making some blocks, for my next effort. The Australiana themed fabric I have purchased this year, finally went to good use. I made two of each of the eight fabrics, as, you can see the bottom left corner the pattern repeat makes it look like a different block, but is the same fabric. I was trying to line up fabric so I didn't cut heads off kangaroos etc, but it didn't always work out, as some of the prints were a tad large.
Last but not least this is one of the last cot panels I brought in January at Hettie's Patch sale. I have quilted it simply, just follow outlines, and didn't over quilt. A lovely boys quilt, all ready to be gifted to an expectant friend.
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
