Quilt Progress.

This is how I put the blocks together. I stitched them down in pairs.
 Then I added the last row.

 Keeping them joined, I stitched the rows together.

 Tilli says, "Enough mum!, Give me some attention". so I did!

 All the blocks are sewn, now I am adding the sashings, corner stones and guitars row by row. I am so happy with my table that I can keep them set out as I sew, no problems with getting the blocks out of order.

Aussie Hero Quilt Started.

I took the morning off to come up with a design and this is what I decided to do. Keeping the design simple. This is another Aussie Hero Quilt request. The request was  "8 year old boy, likes army soldiers and guitars". The guitars are hand drawn using fabric pens after I have made the blocks. The boy's name will be added as well with appliqued letters in red to tie the colours together. The backing I have not on decided yet.
