TODAY... get to see the first of the Australian exchange quilts... it is BIG (72 ins square), and it hangs on the wall in my back room I see it all the time xx..

my colours were YELLOW and GREEN with an Australian theme fabric..

I appliqued  motifs that I thought had an Australian theme ..

I found some paper clips like feet...(for walkabouts)...

I quilted fish all around the edge to represent the sea... and sewed on sequins for air bubbles..

this was the block I made each month (in the chosen colours) to send to Graffton..

it was a labour of love...

Hope you like it... now back to work on the second one xx

Keep smiling
