Aussie Hero Quilt.

 Today I have made another Aussie Hero quilt. This time the request was for aqua and elephants. All over quilted.
It is the same on both sides. They were a pair of cotton curtains from Savers ages ago, I was going to use them for laundry bags but when this request came through, I thought perfect.

Quilt Continued.

They are not ironed on yet, but they are placed where I want them.
I thought I might show you a close up of the fabric I used on the dragons.

A Good Idea.

I have made my templates out of a plastic table mat and then discovered that I could not write on it with a pen, it would rub off so I hit upon this idea. Write it anyway with a felt tip pen and then cover what you wrote with sticky tape. Problem solved!

Aussie Hero Quilt In Progress.

This is the Aussie Hero quilt I am working on at the moment. His favourite colours are red, blue and black and dragons. I will be appliqueing 2 dragons on the quilt, I have the image I want, Just have to go to Office works to get it resized. One dragon will be red and the other black, they will be positioned on the quilt tail to tail.
