Caz made a laundry bag to go with Carole's quilt.

And then she tool a wattle teatowel and made this lovely quilt!

 Cath is also new to AHQ and made the following three quilts

 Cheryl R made this cutie but what does not show up in this photo is that the words and the Bananas are APPLIQUED! as in the letters are cut out of coloured fabrics and individually made!  Great Job!

 Christine C (WA) sent this off and what you can't see is that this is a food themed quilt - headed for a COOK!

I hope you have all been madly stitching away at your Australia Day laundry bags.  Remember they will be included on a special Australia Day Post but the photos must be in by 10am SYDNEY TIME on the 26th if they are to be included. And NO, Amy, Queenslanders do not get an extra hour.
