Aussie Hero Quilts Continued.

Painted 2 blocks yesterday, This is for 2 quilts I have in the works. Both of these will have block of the month blocks coming to me in the post. I washed and ironed them today. The blue and black bled a little. To use them I will have to iron them onto webbing and fussy cut them out. Lesson learned, not all acrylic paints are the same.  Today I will be making swatches with all the brands I have, name the brands and photograph before and after treatment. I will keep you posted. The other quilt I have started is a fun one, Angry Birds.
