I can officially call myself a quilt designer now as my first design went to publication this week. I have not yet got my hands on a copy of Homespun, but I was alerted to the fact that it was out when a friend sent me a congratulations on face book. So here it is....
I called this spring scrap buster, as I used up my strip scraps for the birdhouses in the quilt, but then all of the appliqué is scraps, I never purchased a shred of fabric to make the quilt it was all from my stash which to me is he beauty if fun wall quilts like this. Homespun have renamed it "flying colours" in the magazine.
My other big finish this week was a custom order from my etsy store. The lady sent me this picture, and asked me to design a quilt incorporating the owl border on my popular owl quilt.
And this is what I came up with for her, it was posted today, I hope she likes it
Now that out of the way, I have a vintage caravan quilt to quilt for another magazine design, and I have my daughters baby shower in 5 weeks time so I need to get a move on with her quilt.
