I was having my usual flit around on the net this evening, and stumbled across this lovely blog, with all sorts of eye candy on it....and back in September, she posted a pic of a quilt she made for her nephew, who is serving in the American Navy.....I won't share the pic of the front of the quilt, but I will share a pic of the back of it,
mainly because I want to know why there's no Aussie fabric like this? Any Aussie Designers (preferably, but if a designer from another country would like to help out, I'm happy for that to occur) who think they could come up with something similar but saying Australian or Aussie Hero on it.....I know a WHOLE bunch of quilters who would probably snap it up before it even hit the shops....you Friends of AHQ all know you'd buy it don't you???? lol I know I would, and I'm pretty sure Jan-Maree would....and we wouldn't be alone.
If I could afford it, and had the talent to design it, I'd be heading straight to Spoonflower to get some made up. Oh why didn't I pay attention in art, or learn more about design, oh and I guess the most important one, why aren't I rich (apart from the fact that I have a fabric addiction to feed!)? lol
Sigh, guess I'll just have to hope that some clever person can do this on behalf of all the Aussie Heroes who are proudly serving our country overseas at the moment.
