Summer down Under

Several months ago (has it been nearly a year!?) I contacted the wonderful people at Australian Homespun magazine. I'd worked with them once before on this project. But this time I had something exciting the share. I was sharing the news about Going Coastal. Since it's a beach-y collection I thought it would fit nicely with an Australian magazine.  :o) 

We worked for months on planning and I am happy to finally announce that it's been published in the current issue of:

The quilt is called 'Hang 10'

 There's so many fun techniques in this quilt. It's a perfect 'class' quilt. There's piecing, HST's, fusible applique and raw edge applique. Not to mention the fun you can have quilting with all the different parts. It was such a fun quilt to design.

I LOVE Australian Homespun magazine. The projects in this publication amaze me. I always feel a bit inadequate with my projects when I see the rest in the magazine.  :o)  Besides the fun projects this magazine is fun to read. The write-ups on each quilt are wonderful and the pictures are spectacular (Don't you just LOVE those VW buses in the pic w/ my quilt?). This is definately one you should add to your subscription list. Just go to ZINIO.COM where you can get single issues or a subscription.

Want to win you're own issue of Australian Homespun featuring my HANG 10 quilt? Leave a comment and I'll choose a winner on Friday!!!  :o)
