My secret is out! *** UPDATED POST ***

*** UPDATED ***
Thank you to everyone, for your kind words and support. 

A few readers have mentioned that they're interested in purchasing Australian Homespun, but unable to find it in their country. 

Well, the good news is that Australian Homespun is available in digital format now – all you have to do is log on to www.zinio.com.au and you can purchase single copies or even take out a subscription for a great price. 

Just search for Homespun up in the search field (or try THIS link which will take you directly to the latest issue).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've had a secret, for months now, which I hadn't been able to tell you.

It's an exciting secret and yesterday I received the final product, so I can finally divulge all of the details with you.

You know that I have had other projects published in the past, but this is the first one I have had in Australian Homespun.

I'm so pleased to see my quilt and name in the glossy pages of Australian Homespun. Seriously, cool!

And not only is it in there, it's on the front cover!! It's the one hanging up on the right, in the picture below.





The quilt is called "Step in Time" and is a fun and simple design.




In my quilt, I used 2 charm packs of "It's a Hoot" by MoMo and yardage of Kona White and Kona Ash.

This issue of Australian Homespun went on sale yesterday.

I'm so excited!!!!

Hello Again,
I just wanted to let you know, a lady I sew with on a Tuesday is making this quilt. She told me that she simply LOVED the pattern. She cut it out yesterday, and is sewing today. She got the mag on Monday. Congrat again,
Hugs

I am obsessed with this quilt and would love to make it. Is there a way to get an issue of this copy of Homespun shipped to the US?

Amy said...

Or to get a pdf copy of the pattern?
