Aussie Hero Quilt Continued.

 For something different, I am quilting the blocks from the back side up to echo the leaves and flowers. This makes the back more interesting.
From the front it looks like this.

Aussie Hero Quilt Request Started.

This is the start of my next Aussie Hero quilt request. Mystical tree with gold leaves. the black fabric is for the back of the blocks, the pale yellows for the background of the top of the blocks and the brown for the trunk and branches and the green with gold for the leaves. I have made a drawing with a grid pattern to make my tree shapes for each block to be cut out and appliqued. I bought some gold glitter fabric paint and will do a test piece first to see if it will work.
Inspired by my weekend away for the Aussie Hero Dinner I have sorted out my sewing room and kept only Aussie Hero stuff with small cardboard boxes for other crafts. Organised and focused.
