This and that

I have spent the last few days beavering away getting and Aussie hero quilt finished...I am pleased to say this morning I did the final bits, wrote the letter to go with it and it is ready to post...O am off to the PO soon via the supermarket as a packed of Tim Tams are required to go in the box.
the request was for walking boots and walking in the tropical bush. As I have never been in the Qld bush I have looked at pictures and come up with this. The main part of the quilt was made by Jill, a quilter from St Leonards, we had a 1600 challenge and she used batiks and then decided she didn't want it so gave it to me...thought it was perfect for this quilt.  The Supervisor was resting and not on the job today!!

Love the boots, I put laces on them to give a 3D effect.
When were away I was working on another block for the Seachange raffle quilt
a bit crumpled from being folded up!!

the two blocks together. I quite enjoyed having another go at needle turn!
I am off to the PO now!
Happy sewing.

The Aussie Hero quilt is so great, the recipient will love it. The needle turn applique is so lovely, I really want to do this, I've been thinking about it for a couple of years now but still not taken the step. Cheers Kaylee
