I’m in Handmade Magazine

My latest project to be published is my Dresden table runner. It will be in Handmade magazine and available for purchase on starting Wednesday, 16th May 2012.

Issue number: Handmade Vol 30 No 4
And not only is it published, check it out on the front cover!

Inside the magazine, you’ll see my project, plus my photo. Eek!

I remember when I took this photo. I was at a local tourist attraction called the Kiama Blowhole. I was trying to get a photo of me, in front of the blowhole, while the water was “blowing”.

Hub tried, but didn’t get one that I liked, so I took charge and got lucky with a shot at the right time.

Now back to the project - I love this runner.

I love the Dresden plate blocks.

I love the Trapunto which makes the Dresden’s “pop”.

I love the fabric prints (it is mostly Flora by Lauren + Jessi Jung for Moda Fabrics).

I love the colours.

I love the hand quilting.

Mothers Day is here on Sunday, so my mum may just receive this runner and a voucher from Good Return.

Do I sound proud? Yes, I admit that I am – just a teensy bit.

Dresden Plate blocks – love them, loathe them, or never tried them?


  1. Lovely, congratulations on the recognition of your talent. Looking forward to seeing more ! Janet

  2. Very nice! And it's funny, but when I first looked at the table runner I thought maybe the Dresden Plate was a clock. I see it is not, but wouldn't that be a fun idea?
