Another Quilt for Show and Tell

Here's a quilt I made for a little Aussie friend who is liviing in London for awhile. I hoped it would help him get to know his Australian animal friends as he grows. Actually, he visits Sydney regularly, and now that he's two years old he probably doesn't need a cheat sheet any more.

This quilt was designed using Margaret Rolfe's paper-pieced block designs. If you haven't used her book/disk combo (I have the Australian animals one, obviously), then I highly recommend it.

Oh, and I promised to report on the big reunion yesterday afternoon. What fun that was! There were people there I hadn't seen since I left the ballet company in around 1978...amazingly, we pretty much look like ourselves, only mostly a few pounds heavier and a bit more wrinkly. What a treat to spend time with old friends.

Oh I have always wanted to make some of those animals from that book. Your quilt looks great!

I'm so glad you had a good reunion. How fun is that. When I was younger (and much thinner) my dream was to be a ballerina. I danced all through college, but never did what it took to be a real ballerina.
