TODAY...

...you 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 ...so 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
