    I am doing a BOM and this is my first completed block.

    The central motif of each block is an Australian animal and is supposed to be appliqued and embroidered but being a painter, I found I wanted to paint my koala instead.

    I have used a lot of poetic licence and my block differs greatly from the class project but I am gaining a lot of inspiration and embroidery knowledge from attending the class.

    I have almost finished my second block which is a kangaroo.

    DeeCee, is there much difference painting on quilting fabric than canvas? Your quilt is going to be gorgeous. I appreciate your embroidery skills, too.
