Australian Quilters Companion #73: Preview

My friend Lynette Anderson alerted me about seeing my name on the cover of the latest issue of Australian Quilters Companion!!  I am so excited I am being PROFILED!


I haven’t received my magazine copy yet.  I was wondering if those of you in Australia, or those of you who subscribe electronically have had a chance to browse through the magazine.  I am curious to hear your thoughts.

Lynette and I also have a quilt featured in the same magazine issue.  More details will be posted in a separate blog post.  Stay tuned.

Over the Fence: Sneak Peek

Signed copies: Recreating Antique Quilts

Dear Friends, I hope you are well.  I am slowly getting back to the swing of things. I didn’t know just how exhausted I was from Market.  I made some blocks yesterday, and hope to finish up the entire quilt by this weekend.  This is going to be a very fun “on the fence” design. :)  Stay tuned for designs.


I am now able to ship you signed copies for my book Recreating Antique Quilts. However, I am a one-woman operation – I hope you understand.  And I have a limited number of books.

So, while I am trying to waiting for my husband (who works long hours) to work out the fancy way to speed up the checkout process for your purchase, for now, we have to do it the Mom and Pop way.  If you would like to purchase a signed copy of Recreating Antique Quilts…
