John's 70th Quilt

I decided a while back (about 2 years) to make this quilt for DH's 70th Birthday. As I wanted it as a surprise I could only work on it outside the house - so many group days and retreat days were used to make sure I got it done on time...and of course I had to fit it between all those other projects.

Finally it is finished and handed over to John.



 

 

The pattern is Truly Aussie designed by Helen Stubbings of Hugs & Kisses.  
There are a few sayings that I don't think I have heard before but they all add to the interest.

Now onto all that Secret Stuff  . . . .
