Amy Butler LOVE(s) Australia Day too . . .

Greetings all,
While i will not enter into the debate about our flag . . . which arcs up around every Australia Day . . . & no, this is not my proposed solution either.  Just saying that Amy Butler LOVE(s) Australia Day too, 'tis all.  For those of you who don't get the slight pun, Amy's latest gorgeous fabric collection is named 'love' with a heart for the letter 'o' in 'love' & all of the fabrics included here are from that pretty range.  Delightful don't you think?? 


Back off the union jack, my Mummy is British & you can't deny it's not a cool shape to play with.  Ever noticed how all the British blogs have fabulous & proudly displayed union jacks on them??  Not lost on me (right Mum??)

So this is going to be made into a large bed head style cushion for our eldest daughter, but i couldn't decide on the star combinations (cheating, they will be applique on in the morning after consultation) & it's late & we've been swimming all afternoon, after a morning meeting & never ending evening & not happy with my late night photography either . . . i'm leaving as is so as to not regret any late night sewing. 
Happy Australia Day everyone, we'll be eating lamingtons & having a BBQ.  Wishing everyone a safe public holiday with their loved ones.  Love Posie

i think it's all the diagonal lines in the Union Jack that make it so cool to look at...i'm VERY partial to diagonal lines! i will have to write about that sometime - thanks for sparking a blog idea!

This cushion is looking great. I often read British 'house' magazines like country living and there is more often than not a union jack featured on a cushion or wall hanging. Your daughter should love it. Hope you and your family have a lovely Australia Day.

Love it! I've been pondering union jack type applique pictures recently, have an inkling to make something patriotic! But with cutesy fabric, a la cath kidston style I think!
Thanks for your lovely comments. x

Happy Australia Day to you. I've still got to find out what lamingtons are - guess something cakey?

Love your mix of A.B fabrics.

Oh and bad bad snails munching your post.
