Gumnut Gear is extremely pleased to present A Year in the Land of Aus, our very first block of the month quilt!
Each block of this quilt depicts a single month with an Australian theme, such as the Australia Day fireworks over the Sydney Harbour Bridge in January, the beautiful flowers of Canberra’s Floriade Festival in October, and our Australian Christmas in December.
Each block combines sewing, applique and embroidery, and a quilt as you go assembly, allowing for each block to be completed independently.
Once all the blocks are completed, they are joined together to create the stunning A Year in the Land of Aus quilt. Alternately, each block can be made into a separate mini wallhanging is desired. The full quilt has a finished size of 56” x 74” (140cm x 185cm).
Early in August this year, A Year in the Land of Aus was exhibited at the Canberra Craft and Quilt Show, in the Canberra Quilters Members Exhibition. It was awarded a Highly Commended in the Wall Quilt (professional) category.
Congratulations Therese on such an excellent achievement!
