Our Colour of the Month (CoM) is BLUE. I had many colours in my stash that were a questionable blue, but on googling 'blue' I discovered a site listing 144!! I'm all good.  :)) Here is a little sample from the site. I'm sure we all must have a little in our stash.

Please remember the importance of our Plain Jane squares in the blankets that are created. Perhaps make some in blue or a colour/s inspired by something in your landscape or somewhere you have visited. Have fun...and please share with us.

Stunning blanket, Patricia!   The stiped squares really make it sing!  

A gorgeous blanket, Patricia. Love the red, white & blue and the design of the stripes and textures 

So wonderful - I am full of admiration for your skill in creating  it. 

This month I hope to take a virtual trip around the world,  visiting the seven continents.....starting in Australia.  :))

July 2021 Theme - Around the World

The flag on the left is the Australian Aboriginal flag.
Black – represents the Aboriginal people of Australia
Yellow circle – represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector
Red – represents the red earth, the red ochre used in ceremonies and Aboriginal peoples’ spiritual relation to the land.
The right is the Australian flag.
The flag has three elements on a blue background: the Union Jack, the Commonwealth Star and the Southern Cross. ... Below the Union Jack is a white Commonwealth, or Federation, star. It has seven points representing the unity of the six states and the territories of the Commonwealth of Australia.

If anyone is a fan of The Big Bang Theory (I know from a previous discussion that Anne Powell was), you'll remember Sheldon and Amy's Fun with Flags shows, so you've got a lot to live up to, Bev! As you're fond of saying - No Pressure!

Hmmm, not a fan of The Big Bang Theory, at all.

I have enough appliques to sink a battleship, the pressure is time to knit the squares to put them on.  I shall give it a good go.   :))

Thanks for this history lesson.  I really like the meaning behind the Aboriginal flag, I have never see that before.

I have no idea where you get all your appliques each month, I can't wait to see what you have for this month's theme.

Thank you very much for explanation. Still I´ve known only an official Australian flag.

A beautiful and thoughtful square, Bev.   And there's that beautiful stitching, too.  Good on ya!

I love this idea of your double squares to represent the continents, and of course your great appliqués. Great intro Bev.

Fabulous intro Bev and loving your description of the Aboriginal flag. 

July 2021 Theme - Around the World

We have many species/sub species of parrots on our property from time to time.
Eagles are not unique to Australia, but I love how they look in flight.

This 'square' is actually a deeper colour than it appears, here, but the camera thinks it knows better.  :((
