YoYos a la Mode in print.

Hi everyone - 
We've kidnapped Rachaeldaisy and have been chasing butterflies and following rainbows. Now we've taken her on a picnic in the woods so we'll be away a little bit longer.
She asked us to say a big thank you to all those have checked in on her to make sure she's alright. It's nice to know she's missed. Be assured it won't be long until she's back to her regular blogging.

In the meantime you can check out the current issue of Quilters Companion #74 ...

where on page 76...

you'll find the pattern for her Yo-yo's a la Mode quilt.

Beautiful styling as always. Quilters Companion always manage to find the right place to photograph their featured quilts. 

Quilters Companion is an Australian publication so although it's easy to find in our local newsagents I'm not sure about the availability of the magazine overseas but you can download copies digitally here at Zinio.  

You can read more about this quilt and how it won second place in the Modern Traditionalism category at the Australian Modern Quilt Show in a past post here

Thanks for being patient and see you soon for lots of blogging fun!!

Travelling quilts

I've often said my quilts have more exciting lives than I do. They certainly travel more with trips to exotic faraway places, performing in their in colourful textillian ways. If only they could tell stories of their adventures, I'm sure they would keep us entertained for hours with interesting tales. All I can report is the parts of their journeys that I do know about.

Charming Smiles - A finished quilt.

I know some of you are curious after my last post as to what I was up to with my colourful button and pretty fabric combinations. 
I was a tad worried you'd get sick of me showing yet another finished quilt so soon after the last few so I thought it would be nice to have a post of simple eye candy. Plus I thought it was only fair to the buttons to give them a post of their own because little details like that sometimes get lost in the bigger picture.

Anyway I won't keep you suspense any longer, without further ado, here's the big reveal...
