Next Aussie Hero Quilt Started.

Peppa Pig with George Pig. Black stitched outlines and painted colour.

My Time Saving Trick.

I thought I might like to share with you my time saving trick for an Aussie Hero Quilt. As you know I love the Quilt as you go blocks. So I know that I need 15 backing blocks right from the start. I always have a set for female quilts and a set for male quilts even before the request list goes out and when the choice has been made I have my backing strips and backing already cut out. When the request list has been finished I then make another backing set of squares and strips. I do the same thing with the squares, whenever I have some free time I cut the batting and put them into batches of 15. This way I can concentrate on the fronts only.
