Special requests come into the coordinator for Aussie Heroes for quilts of a favourite and certain theme. This one depicts the Geelong Cats sporting team along with the appliqué featuring their emblem. The quilt is in all shades of blue and different printed fabrics.
The quilt on the floor was another special request for a soldier who wanted one showing the marine life on the Great Barrier Reef.
These specially made quilts are labelled by the coordinator with the soldier’s name, rank and regiment and then dispatched. The quilts have to fit a specification to be all the one size so they can be packed into uniform size boxes for dispatch.
