This is the start of my next Aussie Hero quilt request, cats. I chose some silhouettes of cats and will turn them into templates so that I can rotate them and make some blocks with them. Meggie is helping.
While I have been waiting for the Aussie Hero list to come out I have been busy making bags for the playing cards as part of the gift packs that go out with the quilts and laundry bags. I have also pre cut backings, batting and laundry bag linings to be done to help be more efficient. This afternoon I will be making cards.
The weekend sewing is for other charities and gift making for family and friends. This was my New Years promise to myself to keep myself more organised. This picture is the quilt I am making for my Grand Niece.
More of those adorable bears for charity using polar fleece.
I am always on the lookout for things I can get to add to the packages for Aussie Heroes stuff. I needed something that said Aussie to me and on ebay I came across some air fresheners. He was selling them in sets of 25 or 50 but had also listed that he could do bulk amounts also. He did have 200 lemon scented. I wrote and asked if he could do the eucalyptus for the same price as the lemon, I told him what I wanted to do and he was very happy to do it. He said he would put in some extras as it is a good cause.
He was very generous indeed, He gave me an extra pack of 50. Thank you so very very much. All the quilts and laundry bags will have a couple of these in each of them.
Firstly, I cannot adjust the pictures at the moment as the program I am using is not working, So I hope that you can see what I am doing. These are the two logos painted and appliqued ready to sew for the quilt. I will be assembling all the other blocks while these are drying.
Lol! Sandy helping with the quilt. A change of direction, the fabrics I had previously used for this quilt was making it too busy, those blocks have been put aside for a future quilt, This will be all the same fabrics instead making the flags pop.
I am finally starting a quilt for my nieces baby girl, Princess quilt and toy from the book Happy Quilts by Antonie Alexander. these are the fabrics I will be including in the quilt. Long overdue, and when she announced she is expecting a baby mid year, I thought I should get a wriggle on. I will be changing it a bit. I plan to work on it one day a week.
Today I made this mermaid from the book Happy Quilts by Antonie Alexander. This is another toy for my charity makes. This is the link to her blog, The Red Boots Quilt Company-Happy Quilts, https://theredbootquiltcompany.com/
