Marian's quilt


These are a few photos of Marian's Aussie quilt that she made to go to England. The centre of the quilt was from a pattern in Down Under Quilts by J Lees and the outer blocks are                                patterns by Margaret Rolfe.
Good representations of all things Aussie. Love the koala's lounging around in the tree!
This quilt was a challenge, as the customer said, no SID! Really had to restrain myself.
This quilt should be on display at the Kaniva Quilt Show on October 20 and 21, so have a day out and visit Kaniva, which is just over the border from here, into Victoria.
Be back another day with more photos, still lots to show.
The weather has turned to winter again, very cold today and wet. Just when we think the spring has sprung, back comes the winter. Just as well we have heaters, and thankful for my house, would be miserable on a park bench. We have so much to be thankful for.

Jude, this is such a special quilt. I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice. You did a wonderful job of quilting it.
Blessings and stay warm.

Weather wild and wooley here too, but farmer brothers tell me that the rain is welcome even if a tad late, so I am trying to rejoy in dragging out the winter gear! I consider it a benefit to use my quilts a bit longer.
Thanks for the lovely show and tell.
