The Value of Feedback

Yesterday some people who saw my quilt in progress thought my kangaroo from the 18th May was the Qantas logo. That wasn't at all the effect I was after, and although the intended recipient of the quilt would have known what it really was, I didn't want people thinking of Qantas when they saw it.

Today I made a change to the block, and now I hope it is more obvious what it really is. I don't have a picture of what it looked like before I changed it, but what do you think of when you see this?

I'm much happier with it now. I'm thankful to those who didn't recognise it, because they spurred me on to make it better. Of course, they still may not recognise it. Here's a trivia question for you; What colour is the Qantas kangaroo?

Here's a clue. It is not red.

Compare and contrast:
RAAF Roundel


  1. Aha! White on Red vs Red on White . . . I must admit, I had no idea what colour the Qantas logo was. I just knew it was a kangaroo. I guessed blue. Anyway,what you've got now looks a lot like the RAAF Roundel. Good luck with finishing the quilt!

  2. hmm i can see how easy it is to get it mixed up. both are similar looking roos just with a few important differences; direction and colour etc.
    feedback sure is helpful. :)
