Kookaburra sitting in the old gum tree.

This beauty went home last week for binding and is then a birthday pressie for a special sister - can't mention any names because I'm not sure if said sister doesn't read this blog....

It is a design by Kookaburra Cottage Quilts, called Kookaburra Laugh and isn't it just so Aussie?
I really enjoyed quilting this one, it is all done freehand with the aid of a couple of rulers to get the leaf shape and to SID.

I had a little play with some straight lines and curves, and these show up in the next 2 pics, taken with the shadow across them.

As an aside I was listening to Outlander by Diana Gabaldon whilst doing this, in preparation for the next book coming out soon.
