Made for Aussie Heroes
January - Everyone who went to the Aussie Heroes Christmas Dinner in 2012 was given a piece of challenge fabric and asked to make one or more blocks from it. This was my contribution - 5 Greek Cross blocks.
The blocks were made up into 2 quilts. This is one of them displayed by Jan-Maree at her home at the Aussie Heroes Christmas Dinner 2013. Cute eh?
"Adventures in Black and Yellow" - January
This chap requested a black and yellow quilt. The laundry bag I made to go with that is below.
January - this quilt was made from a block of the month blocks made by AHQ supporters and which I started to put together at a sewing day at Jan-Maree's. The laundry bag below I made to go with it.
Also made in January
February - This chap loves his dog, which happens to be a labrador, so the centre panel was selected specially for him. The laundry bag below went with the quilt & was made with some of the fabrics I used in the quilt.
April - Two Star blocks made for a special Blue & White quilt from Challenge blocks.
And here is the quilt made up with all the blue and white blocks from around the nation. My two are in the centre row.
April - Another two I made, which I forgot to photograph, were for a chap who liked cooking, so they had feature fabric with a cooking theme.
3 Laundry bags made with fabric donated by Joyce - June
Another 3 with fabric donated by Joyce - July
July - Pink and White star block for collaborative quilt for Facebook followers. (terrible photo - that bluey colour is actually a pretty peach colour!)
Here is the completed pink and white quilt ready to go to its recipient. My block is bottom centre.
July - A top made from blocks of the month at a sewing day at AHQ. We were two blocks short of a top for this, so I made two blocks and then sewed the top together.
80 blocks for August 2013 BOM
And the is what some of them became. Blocks by me, put together by me at a sewing day at Jan-Maree's, borders by Caroline & Jan-Maree, Cockatoos and quilting by Debbie. Awesome result!
