In the land of Down Under, we Aussies love our Jelly Cakes, Lamingtons, Hedgehog and Vanilla Slices. The delicious pink and chocolate fabrics seemed to ‘flavour’ the quilt with these little gourmet delights - hence the quilt’s name! In many country towns, the local bakeries claim to produce Award Winning Vanilla Slices. Of course, we all love our Vegemite as well!! This black concentrated yeast extract spread has filled most Australian children’s lunchtime sandwiches over the years, and most of us could not step out the door in the morning before having our Vegemite on the breakfast toast. We simply find it difficult to understand why it is not adored by our friends in other countries as well!!
Anyway, this is my Jelly Cakes & Lamingtons quilt which I made as my first Block of the Month in 2007. Enquiries welcome - pattern only.
