October OPAM

Wow, October is the busiest quilting month I think I've had for a while.

I have quilted a couple of quilts for friends & Aussie Hero Quilts.

I was asked to quilt a special quilt as a gift for a 15 year old girl.  I don't usually work in 'pretty' colours but I was so excited about how the quilting came out.

If you look just above the ricrac you will see "Amy"
 The cotton was white.  I love how it seems to have picked up the colour of the fabrics.

I have been frantically working on Aussie Hero Quilts & Laundry Bags.  I managed to convince the craft ladies that they could help me, so I have been sewing, supervising, quilting & binding to help us get our quilts off in the mail.

This Aussie flag quilt was pieced by Victoria from craft, I quilted & bound it.

I love stitching messages into the quilts... "Thank you"
"Aussie Hero"
This Rising Sun laundry bag is to accompany the Flag quilt.
  The embroidered Rising Sun was sent to me from AHQ Headquarters.
 They look great together, and no doubt they are from Australia.
 This jelly roll quilt had the Southern Cross added for an Aussie Hero
and backed in Wallabies Fabric.
 It was a  little fitting / sad that I was working on the binding for this quilt during the Wallabies vs All Blacks final of the rugby world cup.  Shame we didn't win, but I was at least sewing to help me keep my eyes open at 2.30am.  :) 

There are a few more Aussie Hero quilts under the needle to be sent before Christmas, so back to the sewing I go.

Thanks for stopping by.
