These "Make me Smile" blocks are being sent to another Aussie Hero sewer to put together with others blocks for some guys in Iraq on deployment. I really do enjoy making these star blocks.

I hope they make someone smile....

Not much blogging for me lately, I have been busy making 2 Aussie Hero Quilts over the last month.
They are both for females, the request for the first one was for a "Dedication to Peter Pan, she lives by the Ocean and loves shades of blue and coral".  I'm happy that I've met the brief for this one and I hope the recipient loves her quilt, I also made her a laundry bag but forgot to take a photo, only realising this after I had packed it all up.
This is the front of the quilt.

This is the back of the quilt.  I also decided to add in a little bit of "Aussie" themed fabric.

The brief for this one was "Purple, Disney Movies and St. Kilda AFL Club", I am happy to have met the brief, making the front of the quilt with Purple and Disney Movies using the pillow case from the doona cover set I made the quilt at the top of this blog post. 

I made the back of the quilt the St. Kilda part of the brief.  I hope the recipient will be happy with her duel quilt top.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Cutting binding was one of my "pet hates",  not anymore , it's so quick and easy with my GO machine.  However I tend to cut way too much, I really enjoy using my GO machine, it's so quick and easy.  I needed binding for 2 Aussie Hero Quilts I am currently working on and I cut enough for 3-4 quilts in under 10 minutes.  So I no have spare which is always good to have on hand.

Have a great long weekend everyone.



Oh gosh this heat we've been having on the East Coast has been terrible.  We put the aircon on in the bedroom at night as it's too ...
