Aussie Hero Quilt Continued.

I have printed off a colour chart for me to work from. Waiting for block to dry before adding more sewing lines. The lines are chalked on as guide lines.

Birthday Cake And Shopping.

 This is the cake my niece has made me for my birthday, a bunch of purple flower cupcakes presented in a bouquet. How lovely.
 I went to Spotlight today and bought these lovely fabrics to compliment what I am using for the scrappy blocks I am making. The large fabrics are $5 per metre and the fat 1/4s are 5 for $10.

Quilt Restarted And Birthday Flowers.

 This is how I was going to do the quilt originally, but last night I had a re think. I love the colours but not the straight lines.
 All the colours have been put into a bag.
I am now cutting them up smaller and placing them in random scraps like the litter of the earth.

Today is my birthday and my lovely sister from England has sent me some flowers.
How lovely is this! My favourite colours, How blessed am I. Thanks Sis!

Aussie Hero Quilt Started.

This one has several requests in it and one of them is autumn colours. Most of the blocks will be scrappy, using this middle fabric as the starting point. Most of the fabrics used will be donated fabrics so see if you can spot what you gave me.
This is one of the costumes I was helping my son with last week. I made his cape for this one.

The Pink Project.

Made a start on number 14. I will couch the shapes in with the colours I have painted then with.
I gave one to a door knocker yesterday to give to his friend who is currently in treatment. He was door knocking for a different cause, unable to help him in his one, my life is pretty full and cannot add another to my plate.

Aussie Hero Laundry Bag.

Time poor this week, so I just chose a laundry bag for this week. Maroon, white, Rugby League, State of Origin QLD was this request. Not having a lot of white fabric, I like to keep it for the T shirt transfers, I found some white bias tape (Savers), and hemming tape (Savers again), made my own stripes on the fabric and stitched it down using a wide zig zag.

Aussie Hero Quilt Continued.

This is for the solid quilt blocks. I have enlarged the central piece of the badge and simplified it, labelled it and traced it onto template plastic. Cut it out and now using the erasable pen I will transfer it onto the fabric for sewing.

Using the same fabric pieces for the star block configured differently makes for added interst with no extra effort.
