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 and to cap it off, I decided to quilt 6 maps of Australia on the little quilt...... and marking a cross on one where Nana and Grandad live!
