Some weekend sewing and machine quilting on Sunday resulted in another quilt finish for an Aussie Hero.

The recipient requested "Surfing" and colours of "Black and Yellow", I happened to have some quirky surfing fabric in my stash and made them into star blocks, you only need 15 star blocks to make a single bed quilt. I am so thrilled to have it finished and I am really happy with the result. I hope LEUT Shawn likes his quilt.

This is the back, I used half of one of the single bed quilt covers I purchased from Spotlight a few weeks back.

This is a close up of two of the blocks, the little doggie is so cute on the surf board.

I have been fully machine quilting the binding on for these quilts as it is a LOT quicker plus it will be a lot more sturdier. I use a brown zig zag stitch on the front of the quilt which adds in extra strength plus I think it gives it a nice look/finish. 


I also made a laundry bag using a linen tea towel for the front, the fabric on sides and back of the laundry bag is the same as I used for the backing of the quilt back.

The next project for me to tackle is a 21st memory quilt for my youngest, her birthday is1st August,  I don't think I will make the dead line but will give it my best. 



  1. This is a fantastic quilt Kaylee! Love the colours, and that's such a good idea for a backing... Great binding too;)

  2. Great job Kaylee. I am sure your kindness will be really appreciated.

  3. Well done Kaylee. Such a kind thing to do.

  4. Love it! Love it! Love It!!! Great tips too!
