Vintage Australiana

First up I finished my first quilt for AHQ

The laundry bag has the serviceman's initials but I'm not giving away secrets.

posted Tuesday morning  Big Smile!!

I was given the Blinky Bill tea towel and I had the vintage Jenny Kee sheet fabric.

added some 2 1/2" strips and a very Australiana quilt is taking shape.

framed the map of Australia with blue to keep the image clear. the strips were stitched together using the chip quilt process

look in the upper right corner and you can tell where I spent the afternoon. I finished pinning and cooked a nice dinner for DH and I. 

The intensive quilt making for Aussie Hero Quilts is to make the December 1st closing date for Christmas Mail.

I'm enjoying the playing about with big blocks of color .  Always fun to try something new.  Terry

What a fun fabulous Australiana Quilt. I like the strips mixed with bold blocks of colour. I had a Jenny Kee doona cover when I was young, I wonder what happened to it.

CCTV drain survey London are becoming more and more necessary as many mortgage lenders are requiring them prior to the approval of loans. It is also very good practice if you are looking to buy any property if you want to avoid any expensive repair bills for blocked or collapsed drains. Of course leaking drains can cause more than damage to just themselves, permanent damage could also be inflicted on the foundations of the house also.
