I have been busy recently making a quilt and laundry bag for 2 deployed Aussie Hero's.  I really enjoyed making this disappearing 9 patch quilt, it is a little fiddly cutting all the squares and sewing them together but I just love the end result and it looks more time consuming than it actually is. I added the Aussie touches in the corners with the Aussie flag fabric and also the embroidered Kangaroos.
This is one side of the laundry bag with the Australian flag and also some Aussie themed fabric around it.

This is the other side of the laundry bag, I have incorporated a Byron Bay souvenir linen tea towel and some Aussie themed fabric around it.

This partially wonky block will be incorporated with other wonky blocks (made by other ladies in the Aussie Hero Quilts and Laundry Bags group) being made into a mystery quilt for a Hero. I think I need some lessons in making wonky blocks LOL.... oh well, at least I used the correct colours with the red and white and the black and white fabrics.

  1. The Aussie flag in the corner looks great...together with the kangaroo! This is such a wonderful project... and you are generous for being part of it too! :)
