The quilts I sent over to America to be photographed for Quilter’s Newsletter have returned with a copy of the issue they appear in.
These are the quilts:
Shabby Chic Hearts
My Crazy Heart
A Stitch in Time
If you would like to make ‘My Crazy Heart’ or ‘A Stitch in Time’ they are available on my website:
I’m pleased to have them back as ‘Shabby Chic Hearts’ normally hangs over our bed & I’ve missed it!!!
Just a chance thing really, Linda, a regular on the Quilting DownUnder list I belong to, asked if there was anyone out there with original stitchery quilt projects. Linda was planning on writing an article about Aussie quilters who use stitchery. I had a few projects & decided to email pics off to Linda to see if they might suit. They did, so being the queen of ufo’s I set about finishing two of them off. Then I headed down to Melbourne to do some house hunting when an email came through, could the quilts be sent immediately. Uh oh, well I finished them but didn’t quite get the labels on them. Luckily dh stayed home so he got to find them pack them up & organise courier pick up. There were quite a few ladies involved & we all filled in a questionnaire about how we do our stitcheries. Linda put together an article & voila we are in print. This is the first, & probably the last time, I’ll have my work in an American mag & it feels good.
