New Quilt and Quilt Pattern- Trinket Box

The lovely Catherine, Editor of the Australian Homespun, approached me last year to design and write a new pattern for her magazine.. I had had this one floating around in my head and figured it was about time  got my act together and wrote another pattern. You can grab yourself a copy of my new pattern Trinket Box in this months Australian Homespun Magazine No. 106  Vol 13  No. 3
For those of you who aren't able to grab a copy.. this pattern will be available in my shop in about 8 weeks time... 
This was a fun project and i was all ready to whip it up... when I fell pregnant and as you all know.. slipped into a time warp. I couldn't even raise my head to email or blog... so sewing was definitely out of the question. A good friend of mine... Leanne came to the rescue and offered to sew up this little baby for me... so i could still make my deadline and get it into the mag.. Leanne your an angel!!
This quilt measures 60 1/2" x 60 1/2". 
 Its made using 16 Fat Quarters from Joel Dewberry's Heirloom range. The background fabric is Patricia Bravo's light cream and green paisley print.
 I haven't had a chance to photograph it yet... Its still with the Homespun team travelling to a few craft shows.. So if you happen to see it.. take a picture for me! I'll share some better pics and details of the Quilt once i can get my hands back on it.  I can't wait to show you details of the Quilting....
Leanne professionally machine quilted it for me. She has some great close ups you can see HERE on her blog.
 Now that I've moved house and a little tight on space.. I've decided to list this quilt for sale  in my Etsy shop when it comes back to me... Let me know if your interested in purchasing it and ill keep you posted when it goes on sale. 
Oh, and If you are lucky enough to get your hands on this Easter issue... You will also find this great project. A Garment Bag! Ive been wanting to make one for ages just hadn't quite found the perfect pattern. This one looks like it could be a winner!!  Gorgeous hey! 
So much to Sew... So little time xx

  10. That is one gorgeous quilt!
    I like the garment bag too
    What fabrics do you think you will use?

  11. I am only relatively new to your blog and your quilting but isn't it funny how your style just shines through, I have the new issue on my ipad and I saw the quilt and before I even saw the name I knew it was by you!!! I love your style and your designs ( I actually missed out on buying your eden quilt)

    1. Wow! You actually designed that yourself! It's fantastic. Have so enjoyed looking around here and will definitely come back again. xCathy

  13. Can't wait to buy the pattern!

  14. This is a beautiful pattern and looks like a great way to showcase gorgeous fabrics, I'm bookmarking it in the hope I can work up to trying it someday. I'm so glad I asked Santa for a Homespun subscription, 2 beautiful quilts this issue and I'm really excited about the different bag projects coming up each month.

  15. I remember seeing this issue and liking the pattern but wasn't ready for another quilt, just been doing little projects since recovering from morning sickness myself. Since it's in the 2013 diary I tracked it down with the help of the ladies in!/groups/AussieQuiltersChitChat and might get to make it in 2013? If I make it, I promise to send photos!

  16. And I'm only around the corner from you!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment!! xx I LOVE hearing from you xx
