The postie arrived yesterday with the latest issue of Australian Homespun magazine...
...and guess what's on page 88?
My "Sweet Tweet" quilt design!
I made this quilt about 9 months ago as the magazine world needs these projects competed and in their offices at least six months before publishing but now I can finally show you because the secrecy is over!
I've also shared my top 5 tips for a sewing a good back-stitch, and there's a little Q&A about my journey along this designing road...
The magazine is in newsagents around Australia now, or you can purchase it from anywhere in the world as a digital download HERE on Zinio!
If you make 'Sweet Tweet' be sure to send me a photo via email.
It's just 36" square and those pretty little applique and embroidered birds are surrounded by simple block piecing and delightful Flower Sugar fabrics ...
Local long-arm quilter, Marcia Harper, custom quilted "Sweet Tweet" for me and brought all my handwork to life, like the icing on a cake!
Thanks to my precious husband who always supports and encourages me, I get to play with designs for a living. How blessed am I?
I think he deserves a good rich Vienna Coffee, and maybe later I'll paint my toenails to match the quilt...that's my kind of celebration!
Have a wonderful weekend,
