Fat Quarterly Issue 7 is out now! All about colour palettes and where to find help in choosing colours for your projects.

I'm Sew Hip!!!

A while ago I sent off a pdf file to the magazine Sew Hip and was blown away when they said they wanted to print the pattern and asked me to send them the quilt for a photo shoot. But then time passed and it began to feel as if it might never happen. So when my Mum phoned me yesterday the last thing I expected her to say was that she had bought a copy (or probably ALL the copies) of the magazine with my quilt in. Thanks Mum. I am a bit sad that I can't go into a newsagents and see it on the stands myself but super excited to see my quilt in print!

In fact not only my quilt but a few circle blocks that I have made as part of my online bees. You might be able to spot them there in the photo!
So now I am grinning like an idiot and off to celebrate with my girls. We will probably be daring and share a packet of smarties!

Well done you. You must be very proud of yourself.
I went through a phase recently thinking that I would like to do some modern pattern designs for Uk quilting magazines as to be honest they are rather old fashioned but I haven't done anything yet.
I'll try and get a copy of this one.

Woohoo !! Awesome to see your work in print. Huge congratulations. Will have to see if I can get a copy of that mag over here.
