Aussie heros quilts

For some time I have been thinking about quilts for Australians in the armed forces. Their seemed to be a good system in the USA for providing that kind of support but very little locally.

Fortunately quilters with far better organizational skills than me have worked out a system - they have called themselves Aussie Hero's Quilts (and laundry bags).

I thought that this would be a great way to use up some of those piano key borders that I had cut from scraps while making other projects.

The first one has a cushion panel in the center.

The next 2 have home made panels cut from an all over print. I took a 1 meter length of fabric and cut it into thirds lengthways. This gave me the beginnings of the required proportions of the quilt.
This final quilt has a UFO (unfinished object) panel in the center.


  1. nice quilts for a very worthy cause, deborah...

  2. These are great Christine and they are going to be appreciated.


I really enjoy the encouragement I get from feedback. As I am part of the process pledge I love to know if I am giving useful information... looking forward to hearing from you
