Lucy Carroll's Anzac Quilts series

The centenerary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli in World One will be honoured throughout Australian life, including in quilts.

Award winning Australian quilter Lucy Carroll is currently making a series of quilts to commemorate the Anzac Centenary in 2015. She has been invited to exhibit them for the first time at the Australian Quilt Convention in Melbourne, in April 2015. While she is making the quilts, Lucy is generously sharing her process and consulting readers of her blog for their responses to her work.

You can follow along on her blog, Lucy Carroll Textiles. Previous posts on the ANZAC quilt series are here.
