and show you my Star Flannel Quilt finally finished. I hand quilted this in DMC Perle 8 thread. Please excuse the washing hanging either side. As you can see, its an overcast day and I needed to get the boring jobs done before doing the fun stuff.
Quilting on the back...
I quilted eight pointed stars on the larger blocks.
Here it is on my son's bed. An antique one I purchased at an auction years ago.
I love the carving at the head and foot. The whole thing was painted fire engine red when I bought it.
The carving reminds me of the Legacy Torch and and the wreaths we lay on ANZAC Day. I must research the significance of this one day as my Uncle thinks it was made back as early as 1920.
Which leads me to my final photos.
Son No. 3 played euphonium during the ANZAC Day parade yesterday. He took part in three parades. The first one in a small town nearby. It only has about 1500 people and they were very excited to have a band lead the parade for the very first time. Then back on the bus to head down the highway to play during the parade and commemorative services in two more towns.
Perfect Autumn weather prevailed as we remembered those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Lest we forget.
