The Australia quilt

I've been very busy lately finishing off a whole-cloth quilt for a friend's grandson! This little family lives in Germany, so I thought I would make something to remind them of home.

That is where the inspiration for the Australian quilt came from.  

Choosing the contemporary "Magpie Horizons" by talented Kathy Doughty and mixing it with "Kangaroos" by Emma Jean Jansen and Australian Town fabric by Ella Blue Fabrics, I whipped up the quickest little quilt ever.

Quilting was quick and fun. To cap it off, I decided to quilt six maps of Australia on the little quilt ... and marking a cross on one where Nana and Grandad live!
