Blocks Of The Month

We used to run a Block of the Month program but that is not possible any more.  
 
You will see in many of the tutorials, a reference to Sandy, our wonderful volunteer who designed many of the tutorials and who the blocks used to be sent to. Unfortunately we lost Sandy to cancer in 2021 so now the blocks must be sent to us.  The tutorials are still available though and if you feel like sewing a few of the blocks to send to use please go right ahead as they will still be used. 
 
You might also see postal addresses for where to send the completed blocks. Please ignore all other addresses and simply post them to the following address
 
Aussie Hero Quilts 
PO Box 248,
Cherrybrook NSW 2126
 
Thank you.
 
Tutorials are listed in descending order, with the most recent months block on top.  Feel free to scroll through and use any of the tutorials for blocks and/or whole quilts.  If you want to view the other tutorials, please click here
