Australian Country Craft and Decorating magazine. I knew it was going to be in the magazine this month, but I was not aware it was going to be on the cover. Very exciting! I was strolling through the newsagents shop when I saw it.
This is a quilt I started making from a book on Medallion Quilts, and I only got as far as the first two rounds, and put it aside.
ReproFabricLovers group on Yahoo. I had just enough to make the next round. Then I found 4 basket blocks that did not have a home - ok - so they looked good in the corners. What next? Ok, yes that collection of Ohio Stars that we swapped over 12 months with the SewJanes group. I had heaps and heaps of them. I used those, plus some left over Puss inthe Corner blocks, and some Nine patch blocks from years ago swaps.
Before I knew it, this quilt had grown really big. At the same time I was playing with this, the editor of the magazine emailed asking for ideas for upcoming projects. I sent her a photo, long before it was finished, and she took it straight away.
