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!
