Homespun......


Some of you may remember me working on a "Matryoshka Doll" quilt early last year.
Well, it was spotted by Catherine from Australian Homespun magazine and it will be featured in next month's issue, on sale 10th February. I have been dying to show you the full quilt, but I can't show you until the magazine is out!
I am very nervous about the whole thing as it is my first pattern and article.
But one of the great things about this issue is that a crafty friend of mine is also going to be in the issue with me! Rachel, from Four Wise Monkeys has a feature as well.
It is sure to be a great issue. I hope you will all go out and buy a copy!

Congratulations !

Even your Matrioshka Doll quilt impressions already look so extremely fine !

Unfortunately I probably won´t get your magazines here in Germany.

Maybe you could post a foto of the whole quilt after the issues appeared?
