Aussie Heroes quilt top done!

Talk about flying by the seat of one's pants! Today I planned to start my first quilt top for Jan-Maree of Aussie Heroes, and possibly finish it. Well, I did - just after midnight! We had to go out this afternoon for a couple of hours, so that threw the proverbial spanner in the works, but as soon as we got home, I kept working on it, and only stopped for dinner, and to wash the dishes. I'm out all day tomorrow - a Guild meeting in the morning, and my first watercolour class in the afternoon, so I felt compelled to get the quilt top done, so I can start another one for Jan Mac at Oz Comfort, not to mention the new Phoenix Quilts for the fire victims in the USA....If I choose easy patterns like this one for the rest, I'll whiz through them in no time!

It is a bit hard to see, but this middle section has vintage Australian food brand names on it. I've had this fabric for years, just waiting for the right project!

Love the old Aussie fabric, perfect for that quilt. Shows if you wait long enough a use for everything is found. Sylvia
