I figure when you design a quilt pattern that’s a map of Australia it just makes sense to release it on Australia Day doesn’t it? So today I’m taking a quick break from the vegemite, lamingtons and pavlova to let you know that Australia, a paper pieced quilt pattern is now available in my shop. And, since today is Australia Day all PDF patterns are 26% off with the discount code ‘LUCKY’.
I blogged about the Australia quilt last year and shared a bag my friend Cat had made by using the paper piecing templates in their original size. I love everything Cat does but these bags are so great and, she’s made another one. I love it so much I couldn’t resist sharing it with you all.
I figure that there’s a fair possibility that a few of you don’t know what a lamington or pavlova is? So, rather than leave you guessing, I thought I’d share a couple of links to recipes for them by my favourite Australian Chef, Donna Hay. They are both truly delicious and I know if you give them a try you’ll love them as much as us Aussies do.

Happy Australia Day!
