My friend Soeki asked for a quilt for her mother who lives in South Africa, that she could take home with her. I thought it had to be Australian so I used a pattern from Helen Godden (which can be found in Australian Quilters Companion no 46). I made the pattern bigger and added some different elements. I quilted the river through the middle and the swans around the border as well as some eucalyptus leaves. Now its Western Australian! All the fabric is 100% cotton and I used a cotton batting.
