Aussie Hero Quilt Top and EMG Visit

As I've finished my latest creation for magazines, I had a little time to work on my donation quilt. The top is now finished.
I was going for a green and gold look. The centre panels are of a wattle fabric which I picked up for a really good price recently.
I'm going to do an all over quilting pattern for a fast finish. I'll show you when it's complete.

Thusday I had a trip down to the offices of EMG magazines to drop of my latest quilt and to meet Melinda, Editor of Patchwork and Stitching Magazine. She is a lovely young lady and we had a nice littel chat. i didn't want to stay too long as I'd parked awkwardly and was afraid I'd get a ticket (I didn't thankfully). But I had enough time to also catch up with Marilyn (editor of Embroidery and Cross Stitch) and she has encouraged me to design some more designs for them. And I also caught up with Louise, assistant editor of Patchwork and Stitching and Victoria of Handmade.

As usual I came away so inspired to get cracking. I have two quilts with looming deadlines at the end of the month, but I do want to draw something to cross stitch too.

Luckilym things at the Pinnaroo child care centre have slowed down a bit again and I have a bit more time. I will be aiming to use it wisely!


  1. it is looking so beautiful dear x

  2. Your quilt looks great! It must be nice to meet the editors in person instead of just emailing them....I'm jealous! Hope you manage to get loads done in your free time.
