First Australian Patchwork and Quilting Publication

I'm so excited to be in the applique special of Australian Patchwork and Quilting. I always wanted to be in this mag, and now I've made it for the first time, and hopefully not the last.
The issue number is Vol 22 No. 6 and here is how they styled my 'Breeze' applique wall hanging;
I remember how excited I was to finish this applique as it was my first large design. I still think she is lovely though. She is the start of something wonderful I think.

On other news, I've been blog crawling these past few days looking for other Australians on line. It's nice to ' meet' other people who are a little closer than America, the UK or Canada who I might one day be able to meet up with in person and have some creative time together.

I'm thinking of creating an Aussie blog link type page ... what do you think? I'm not really sure I want the extra work though. :)

I hope you've had a happy Easter. I've finished off two gorgeous new stitchery quilt tops (which don't currently have a home in a magazine, so I'll offer them up as soon as they are quilted .... so sorry, you'll have to wait a while to see them. And I finished the Arabian Night Top ready to be quilted later in the week.

We had visitors twice over the four day weekend, so I think I've done pretty well to get as much done as I did. How was your weekend?
