Down Under Quilts {Giveaway CLOSED}

Down Under Quilts is one of Australia’s premiere quilting publications. Not only is it filled with gorgeous and inspiring projects, but it’s also bursting with informative articles and all of the latest trends, techniques and news.


Down Under Quilts : Issue 166 
Featuring Projects by Anorina Morris, Jenny Woodward, Andi Herman and more

This month, Down Under Quilts will be relaunched with a fresh new look… and best of all, I have a bright and summery quilt project in this issue.

My quilt project is called Citrus Burst. This is a photo I snapped at home before submitting it to the magazine. My toothless terror was having a fit of giggles when I was taking the photos. This picture just makes me laugh every time I see it.

This issue also comes with a gift - a pinwheel of quilting pins, ready to use in your next project. Perhaps your next project will be my Citrus Burst Quilt *insert eyebrow waggle here*.

  2. I'm eclectic so I like everything!

    Mostly I am inspired by the projects I see you creating and I practice, practice, practice to improve my sills.

    I like quilting, making reversible hats for the kids, making clothes for the kids. I have made some awesome bean bag chairs for some friends. Mostly I think I like creating something that makes someone else happy. :)
