Roll on 2019. Quilts, Toys and Cats.

 Only 1 more day to go for this year, I made the most of my Christmas Spotlight voucher from my darling Husband, Bought these fabrics for backing of my charity makes for this year, This fabric was $1.25 per metre in Spotlight.
 I have 2 new lives in my family 2019, so I am making 2 cot quilts.
 Cut the batting roll ready for quilt as you go method, Tilli is happily playing with the tissue paper.
Where did that cat go? Lol.
2019 is going to be a very busy year. As well as Aussie Heroes stuff, I am planning on knitting baby stuff, making toys, I was surprised and happy to see hand made toys under the K Mart wishing tree this year after an absence of 8 years following the horrible stuff that went on that banned it, So I am planning on making toys for the tree for 2019. I also have a wedding for a nephew. It is going to be a very busy year.

Aussie Hero Quilt Continued.

 Today I thought it would be a good idea to show you how I do free motion on my fabrics to the batting while keeping the fabric designs intact. This is the front of the fabrics
 This is the back. Just using the free motion foot for it all. Changing the colours of the thread when needed.
This is the layout of the next quilt.
