Fabric Donation.

This lovely parcel of fabric arrived today for Aussie Hero quilts from the lovely Diana of South Australia, a friend of Mae. Thank you so very very much. Keep an eye out for when the quilt is made as you will likely see them being used in appliques.

Birthday Coasters.

 The August meeting celebrates our 21st Birthday at A.C.D.A 
I have decided to give them Birthday Coasters.
 What you will need. A CD, Felt for the bottom, a piece of batting cut to size of the CD, and fabric for the top.

 Craft glue, paint brush and scissors. You will also need your sewing machine to have the zipper foot on.
Glue the CD to the felt square.
Glue the batting to the CD.
Place the top fabric right sides up.

 Sew all the way around as close as you can to the CD.
Trim and you are done. I used pinking shears on mine.

Tilli And The Quilt.

 Cats and quilts go nicely together, Tilli approves!
 Flipping a starched quilt block.
 Loving it!
The request for the quilt is favourite colours green and blue, loves old books, planes and bike riding. I will applique a bike in black onto the American fabric. They are American. The candle is for someone special I will applique initials onto it. The candle block is the centre is of the quilt so you can see where I am going with it. It will have green as the binding too. Quilt as you go blocks with black to make them all the same size.

Hobby Horse

 First hobby horse is almost done. I need to get some O and D rings to replace the elastic on the harness. That is just temporary.
The wheels I have added to the bottom.
I can recommend this pattern as the instructions and step by step pictures are fantastic.
