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.
