Next Aussie Hero Quilt Started.

 The request is for Australian flowers,
and Australian birds. This cotton T Towel from my local shop is perfect. I will be quilting it all over, outlining all the birds and leaves, and stippling, then going back with the bird colours and leaf colours to add more detail with stitching. It will then be cut out straight and used as a centre block on the quilt.

Aussie Hero Quilt Continued.

 Finished Aussie Hero block.
 this is how I did the free motion quilt block. This is what is going to be in all the blocks. I just cut a square of paper, folded it into 1/4 and snipped bits off.
 I then sewed the cut out segments and mirrored it from there.
 Since this quilt is travel and coffee I went to Spotlight to see what they had on special.
 The fabric has a light interfacing put onto it first to make it more manageable, it is a busy fabric and not easy to fussy cut so I cut it into squares to add to the quilt.
 This coffee fabric however is easy to fussy cut. This is first made more manageable by adding a light interfacing.
Fussy cut out.
Thanks Sis for the most fun I have had in ages, Thank you for the lovely Christmas Spotlight e-voucher.
