Valentine's Day in Australia


It is Valentine's Day in Australia. This is a mini quilt I did using a pattern from a Quiltmaker Magazine. The heart was foundation pieced. The quilt measures 4 inches by 4 inches.

In Australia we are trying to come to terms with the loss of human life and animal life which was caused by the fires that ravaged Victoria. Australians have opened their hearts to the victims of the fires and over 80 million dollars has been donated to the bush fire appeal. It is a little surreal being able to go about our daily life knowing others have been so affected by the fires.
