First mini-quilt completed for my "Seasons in Redwork" QOM...


I shared the stitchery block earlier this week...

...and now I can show you the completed mini quilt, "Spring Calling"!
It's 13.5 inches square...
 ...and needed 16 tiny little chevron blocks for the border.
Do you like it?
I spent almost a whole day making (and remaking) the little chevrons...
...but they were definitely worth the effort!
This mini-quilt is the first of four in my new "Seasons in Redwork" QOM (quilt of the month!), and will be inside the September 6th issue of Elefantz HOME e-zine.  
The remaining three mini quilts will feature over the next three issues of the e-zine; the next one being 'autumn falling' for my Northern Hemisphere friends. 

Would you like to see everything inside this coming issue?
Well, apart from the "Spring Calling" mini quilt, you'll find patterns for...
 
 
Plus, we'll learn about French knots: how to stitch them and ways to use them...

...and on my bookshelf this month we take a wander through Sarah Fielke's "Quilting From Little Things", which inspired my decision to make "Seasons in Redwork" a set of mini-quilts!

You'll see my first attempts at making three of Sarah's own mini-quilts from the book and the lessons I learned from them.
Plus, I'm sharing Nana's delicious Rice Pudding recipe "In The Kitchen", as well as writing my usual little bits and pieces about life, the universe, and sewing!

And the cost for this issue?
Just $5 AUD (about $4.75 USD) if you're a subscriber!
How do you subscribe?
Just head over HERE. It's all rather easy, and if you decide you don't like it or circumstances change and you need to cancel your subscription - well, that's easy too.

The e-zine is also available as a single monthly purchase in my SHOP for $7.50 AUD per issue. 

 Ah, the weekend is not far away - joy, joy, joy!!
May your weekend be safe, happy, and blessed.
hugs

  9. That's a magazine well worth the cost. More than most I buy! I love Spring Calling - the chicken actually looks like she is calling something. Maybe "Hello, Spring!"

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
