I made it for Love Patchwork and Quilting Mag a few months back and this issue finally hits the newstand today.
And I made the cover again this month! So chuffed!!!
Putting the blocks on point and making it all quite scrappy has hopefully given it a different slant. Making the feathers fatter was also something I thought important (so you can see as much as possible of the lovely fabrics!).
The magazine did a fantastic job with the photography and styling (as always, it's one of the things I love so much about this publication!)
I'd actually forgotten about the extra blocks I'd made for cushions and was really surprised to see them. I was also delighted to see on instagram that Di has already made her own version of the cushion! So at least I know the tutorial works!
And then there's my quilting. I'm afraid all modesty goes out the window here as I am just so pleased with my FMQ - I just didn't know I had it in me to do this! I know there are many far superior FMQ'd feather designs out there (in fact I was spurred on to give it a try after seeing an exquisite example brought along to our Edinburgh Modern Quilt Guild - more on this in a later post), but for me this is a huge leap forward.
This is definitely my new favourite quilt (that I've made) and I'm so pleased I can at last share it with you.
I love working for Love Patchwork and Quilting and am really proud to have my designs in such a gorgeous magazine, one that I devour myself from cover to cover.
A few more bits of info, the backing is Amy Butler French Wallpaper and the binding is from Windham's Collage line.
And I've got a few other things going on in this issue which I will share in my next post.
