Are you feeling fresh and zesty? If not, do you need a shower? I’ve got some magical gold-dust-infused body wash that will make you feel alive! Oh, so you’re all set with daily hygiene? Rightio. Well, then, I bet you are ready to kick back with one of your favourite quilting mags and get your inspiration on! I think you might just be in luck because the latest issue of Down Under Quilts
hit news stands today and I’ve got a copy to give away!
There are a few important things you should know:
1. Down Under Quilts has recently been redesigned, and is looking super-chic!
2. It’s now sold at Cole’s super markets. Milk, bread, Down Under Quilts! Check!
… and you know, most importantly …
3. My new quilt pattern On the Flip Side
is featured on pages 41-43!
… and if you need more of me in your life …
3a. You might also sneak a peak of me on page 37!
This quilt pattern uses super simple construction, and is a fat quarter stash buster! I designed this to push the reversible quilt boundaries, while also maximising every bit of your fabric. If you already have your copy, there is a small typo on page 43, where the magazine has mistakenly switched around Diagrams 3 & 4. I asked the publisher to reprint the entire issue and re-distribute, but for some reason they said “Um, no.” Ah well, mistakes happen, and I’m sure you brilliant Glitterati are smart enough to figure it out!
While we are talking about me, me, me (:::blushing:::), another little gem landed in my inbox this morning. Kitty from Night Quilter
has featured my Instagram
#selfiewithsparkle in her first ever People Palettes post
as part of her regular Color Inspiration Thursdays. It’s all so hilariously, over-the-top ridiculousness, and I am flattered, enamoured, and totally honoured! As I’ve said before, inspiration can come from anywhere–even a random selfie on the way to buy a bottle of merlot!
I loved Kitty’s palette
(using the Play-Crafts Palette Builder
), but told her I’d throw in some Kona Snow, too. Not Kona White; I know,
who is this person!? So here’s my question to you: What colour would you add to my People Palette
to make it your own? Check me out at Night Quilter
, leave your suggestion in the comments, and next week one random winner will win a copy of this latest issue of Down Under Quilts
featuring my pattern for On the Flip Side
There’s always time to shine.
