FINISHED AUSTRALIAN QUILT

I just finished my Australian Quilt - so named because I received the fabrics from Leanne in Tasmania, Australia.  I think it was a few years ago and I Finally got around to making a quilt with them.  It is a good sized lap quilt and I plan to use it on the couch of our camper when we go out, but will keep it at home when we are home.


The green on the backing does not correspond to the borders on the front, but I think you can see the quilting better.

I actually had fun quilting the borders!!  Now there's only one thing on my short list!

My quilting guild had a pot luck on Monday night along with an ornament exchange.  I was the lucky one to win this unique pincushion, which I think is actually a doorknob hanger.  The lady is wearing a pincushion!   I love her knees and hair.
Blogger made this picture revert to the uncropped and sideways version.
Well, we're getting closer and closer to Christmas and I need to get some more baking done.  DH and I are going to Love's this afternoon to see her decorations.  Tomorrow is a pot luck at church and then I will devote myself to finishing up Christmas preparations.
