Good Deed in Print......

I was excited to recieve the latest Australian Homespun. Inside is a beautiful quilt called Trinket Box by Rebecca Johnson of Chasing Cottons. This is the quilt I helped her out with last year.




Bec is pregnant and at the time of making the quilt she was so unwell with all day sickness,the poor thing, she couldn't even sit upright. Bec had a deadline for this quilt so I helped her get it finished and in on time. It's very exciting to see something you have worked on in a magazine.


There is a really nice article about Bec and how she came into quilting and quilt designing. It's a good read and makes you thankful for all that you have. You can also read Bec's story on her blog.



Since doing this quilt I have 2 of my own quilts that have been accepted to be published later this year. One in Homespun and one in Quilters Companion. I can't wait to see them in print.


Happy Quilting

It's lovely Leanne. I know how hard you worked on this one in such a short amount of time. You put the quilt top together beautifully and your quilting is as gorgeous as ever. It's lovely to FINALLY see the finished quilt after all this time.

I'm sure you two upcoming quilts are even more beautiful. I know because I've seen them! The perks of being your little Sister I guess!
