I received a wonderful parcel in the mail yesterday from Sue in Queensland. This is the third parcel from Sue and this time Aussie Heroes received a gorgeous quilt – Love the tea towel and the colours!!!
And two lots of backing – Sue found both of these at an Op Shop! How come I never have such luck!!!
I really like the brown check- it doesn’t show up in the photo but it is a really warm colour and the blue is a kind of brushed cotton so it is going to be really cozy on the back of a quilt!
And finally Sue included 5 fabulous 9 patch blocks. The yellow in these is going to really brighten up our 9 patch quilt and I love that retro looking blue!
Other exciting news is that I had an enquiry email from another quilt group yesterday! That makes two. I won’t give details till they actually confirm they are going to jump on board but it will be pretty exciting if they do! Mind you, I get excited whenever a newbie joins us. The more the merrier!
I am wondering if any Sydney sewers would be interested in getting together for a sewing day? We could have a laundry bag sewing day or a day when you just bring whatever Aussie Heroes sewing you are working on and enjoy some company (and probably good food) while you sew! Give me a shout if you are interested and also let me know which days would suit you best and I will see what I can organize!
Till next time……………keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
They look great. Sue really is a sewing and fabric machine.
That's fantastic, what a great lady Sue is. I never have such luck at Op Shops either, love Posie
