Based on the traditional 'Birds in the Air' pattern, my little quilt depicts a flight of galahs.
The galahs are pesky, raucous, pink and grey Australian cockies; huge flocks have invaded our local park and take flight en masses when anyone approaches. Machine pieced and hand quilted.
And here is my dad, second from right, at the Adelaide city baths in the 1950s, with friends performing a flight of swallows. On carnival nights they donned clown costumes and became a flight of galahs!
