plus this uber cute dog handler quilt!
she quilted it with a lovely all over swirly quilt pattern. Nothing plain about this quilt now! And yes, I admit to a bit of quilt envy!
Melissa has put together a bunch of great fresh looking laundry bags.
That shark fabric is really neat.
These next three quilts are the work of Donna, another relatively new
quiet achiever Aussie Hero Friend.
I am loving the school holidays. My husband is away (as usualy) and my 16 year olds are doing their best to become nocturnal and so they are leaving me with lovely quiet mornings and sometimes afternoons to work in peace. Don't get me wrong i would love to go out to the movies with them or whatever but apparently that would be totally lame at their age!
So, I am catching up on all manner of things - making backings to go with the quilt tops that get sent to me - cutting battings. Finally finished the second 30m roll of batting and now need to order a new one but before that I am determined to use up a heap of the scraps that we have so I have some batting piecing to do first - oh joy!
The quilt top for Ellie-Lou, SGT Diddams' daughter is completed and off being quilted. The entire quilt for Hens is completed and looks magnificent. Can't show pics as I don't want to spoil the surprise for the family. Not sure how many of them check the blog but just in case......
The bundle of blocks and the backing is about to be sent of for TA's quilt and also for SGT Diddams' parents. Just for any newbies that have joined since we last spoke about these quilts - the Diddams family is getting special treatment as they are our first Fallen Warrior Quilts (FWQ) . All subsequent families that are happy to receive a FWQ will receive one quilt made from BOM (block of the month) blocks. I have just about finished sorting out all the blocks that I have received this month - hooley dooley ladies you out did yourselves. More blocks received this month than any other month! Big thanks to my lovely Gumnut friend (my quilt group) Lyn for helping me sort through all the blocks and group them for quilts. There are even more in the mail!
And that my Friends is it for another week.
Till next time...........keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
