Quiltmania #94 is on the News Stands now in Europe,
and coming to your mailbox if you have a subscription.
Love that quilt on the cover!! Its been made and designed by
another well known Aussie quilter, Marg Sampson-George.
l have 2 quilts in this edition.
The first one is based on antique quilt in my collection, only l added borders.
This quilt featured in the story Quiltmania did about me several years ago.
Not long after that article, l had an email from Margreet, asking if there was a pattern.
At the time l didn't know it was to be published later in Quiltmania,
so happily sent her my rough draft of the pattern.
Margreet has kept me posted on her progress through emails, and blog posts.
How happy was l to receive a note recently that her quilt is finished and now on her bed.
All hand pieced and hand quilt, a wonderful achievement!!
l hope to meet with Margreet one day soon on my
travels to Europe, and what a meeting that will be!!
The second quilt is an antique quilt in my collection.
l just love the brightness and scrappiness of this quilt.
It always gets comments when on display.
Cruising blogs as you do, l came across this post last June.
Imagine my surprise when the quilt Regan
was using as her inspiration was my antique quilt.
She did all her own drafting, and even found a fabric almost
identical for the background triangles.
We have had several wonderful email conversations about the quilt,
and l have been able to give her more info about it.
This will come as a surprise to her, as she didn't know it was going to be published!
Its great having pattern testers without having to make the quilt yourself!!
Here is her finished quilt. Just love it!!
l would love to hear from you if you make one of my quilts
that have been published. Its always nice to know someone
likes your quilts enough to want to make them.
Thanks for visiting.
