A quick trip to the post office will solve that problem. I seem to get stuck coming up with things I can post back to Australia that don't cost an arm and a leg, (I failed miserably on this one). As it was a big birthday for him I wanted something that he could keep, and since it's been five years since I've seen him I wanted something that would last and remind him of how much I love him. So hence the quilt. I worked on each block as a single block ie: quilt as you go, and then joined all the blocks together. He has a love of Asian, (martial arts, and the arts in general) so I decided to go with the red, black and white. It's finally been given a name, "Red Centre". For those of you that are not from Australia, the Red Centre is also known as the Northern Territory, where you'll find Ayres Rock, also known as Uluru.
I know Luke will understand the name behind the quilt. If you'd like to see more of the natural beauty of the Australian outback, click here, and if you'd like to either join in on the festival or see the posts from other blogs then check out Amy's blog.
