Shopping And Next Quilt.

 Today, such a nice day, I went op shopping and came home with this lot. 11 Puzzle books $1 each, 2 vinyl storage boxes, a $1 each, Spool of thread, $1.50, card making card, $1.50, chipboard letter set $3 total spend, $19.
My next Aussie Hero quilt request is for mandala and elephants. Spotlight for inspiration and I found the perfect fabrics. The corduroy for the top of the laundry bags is $4 per metre, Mandala fabric $5 per metre, all the elephant fabrics were at $6 per metre, this quilt will practically make itself! I will be using navy blue for the sashings and brown for the binding.

First block started. North Queensland Cowboys (NRL) is this request. Not sure if the background show up but I have made a star shape out of cardboard and put double sided tape on the back of it and randomly sewed them on. Then in between  have used a random stipple. The sashings and the binding will be yellow.

Donations From Geelong.

 This is the quilt I am working on today. Put on hold for the moment because,
 When the lovely Michelle from Geelong popped in with donations she has collected through her talks on Aussie Heroes Quilts and laundry bags. Lots of lovely things here, Large pieces, fat 1/4s and small scraps, T Towels and crossword books,
As well as a Spotlight gift voucher and cash (JM knows how much they are).
A huge thanks for the donations from Geelong Probus and Geelong Trefoil (Senior Girl Guides).
I will be spending the time ironing and sorting them out into colour and themes. The small scraps will be sewn together and turned into blocks for the back of the quilt as you go quilts.

Invictus Games Quilt And Laundry Bags.

 Now that the pictures are up on the Aussie Heroes Quilts and laundry Bag page I can show you what I have made for the Invictus Games.
 My quilt I have made shows the Kokoda Track which is what my recipient has said is a highlight of his achievements with his prosthetic leg. I wish him all the best in the games and in the future. Such an inspiration.
 These are for the support team.
I wish every competitor all the best. You are already winners.

Laundry Bags And Wall Hanging.

 This week I made 10 random laundry bags.

Continuing with the wall hanging. 1 more block to make then ready to assemble. I have added two tabby cats to represent my daughters cats.
