DIANELLA Retirement Village Aussie Hero quilt...

Here are the residents of the home working on the quilt....

This is now ready to be posted...
The request was for Aqua, Southern Cross & Australian flag.

 AUSTRALIAN FLAG on the back of the quilt.  

Because the quilt was done before we got the recipient I appliqued the southern cross on and added and Australian flag into the backing. Then I bound it with pretty Aqua fabric...

This 2nd quilt request was for purple, minions and mad hatter.. I have added them all..
I'm sure the residents will be happy with it. Looking at these photos I know they are very happy...
