Another Aussie Hero quilt in progress. This time the request was for purple, cupcakes and butterflies. All applique and quilt as you go blocks. A lot of the fabrics are donated ones, so keep an eye out and see if you can spot yours.
This lovely parcel of fabric arrived today for Aussie Hero quilts from the lovely Diana of South Australia, a friend of Mae. Thank you so very very much. Keep an eye out for when the quilt is made as you will likely see them being used in appliques.
The August meeting celebrates our 21st Birthday at A.C.D.A
I have decided to give them Birthday Coasters.
What you will need. A CD, Felt for the bottom, a piece of batting cut to size of the CD, and fabric for the top.
Craft glue, paint brush and scissors. You will also need your sewing machine to have the zipper foot on.
Glue the CD to the felt square.
Glue the batting to the CD.
Place the top fabric right sides up.
Sew all the way around as close as you can to the CD.
Trim and you are done. I used pinking shears on mine.
The Lovely Mae from NSW posted to me this lovely fabric for a Special Request quilt. Muscle cars.
As well as this lot of lovely fabric to be used for Aussie Hero quilts. I have thanked her personally and on my blog as well and will be sending her a photo of the quilt when it is done. All donations will be posted on my blog as soon as they are received. Thank you so much.
This special request Aussie Hero quilt request is for a Royal Australian Engineer (RAE). The only thing he requsted was for his name and his Great Grandfathers name who was an ANZAC. The middle block will have their names and the others are a poppy block and representatives of various RAE colour patches. This is all applique. Quilt as you go then the back added in one piece afterwards.
Cats and quilts go nicely together, Tilli approves!

The request for the quilt is favourite colours green and blue, loves old books, planes and bike riding. I will applique a bike in black onto the American fabric. They are American. The candle is for someone special I will applique initials onto it. The candle block is the centre is of the quilt so you can see where I am going with it. It will have green as the binding too. Quilt as you go blocks with black to make them all the same size.
