Another Quilt top completed.

I'm on a roll here! Can't wait to see the last of all that tartan fabric, so I'm cutting and sewing like a crazy lady. With this one I just made four patchblocks, using all the tartans at random. Ken says it is too much of a mish mash, and would have looked better with fewer patterned fabrics, but I think it looks nice and cheerful, and some homeless boy or man will like it too.

Ah well, just to please the MOTH, my next top is using just four of my tartan fabrics - four patch blocks again, with two colours in each.
Once I've finished that one, I'll decide where they are going. The Aussie icon one will of course go to Jan-Maree at Aussie Heroe Quilts, and the others will go to Jan Mac (Oz Comfort) and Julie (Phoenix Quilts) in the USA.

Very cheerful quilt. You are so nice to do this. The shipping costs alone must break the bank!

Some people like jazzy, so someone will be happy

Thanks Annie (and Jane). The shipping costs are not as bad as they might be if I was to post a completed quilt. I only make the pieced tops; they are finished off at the other end of their journey. If we are able to, we can donate cash to the organisers to cover the cost of backing and wadding, which all helps.
