Last week I started a new quilt for Aussie Heroes. I finally got the "right" split nine patch layout...using a two colour palette combo really helped to see the pattern, but more importantly was having the expertise of Pennie and Mary who have made this pattern before - and brought over a sample!
I took this quick shot so I would have a picture of the layout to use. As you can see I don't have enough variety of Australiana fabrics. Then there is the problem of getting the animals facing the right way up. I have run out of fabric, so I need to buy some more Australiana prints that are non directional...could be interesting!
My friend Lisa and I have decided on a new leaders and enders project - Scrappy Sprouts. I hadn't kitted up the pieces until recently and with all the little kids quilts I have been making I had enough progress to show you what they look like. I have a large collection of green and blue scraps. But trying to increase (cut) a range of other colours for a more interesting result.
In the meantime I am having a big sort out in my sewing room. I need to declutter and that means sacrificing some scraps, patterns and other items that I don't want/don't use/don't need.
Don't worry I will share/give away if I think it is still useful to someone else!
Happy quilting Sue SA.
