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!!

This makes my heart sing! Not that these cute little thugs have kidnapped you -- but that you are in another publication!
You deserve every success, my dear!
Watch out for that kewpie!

Please tell Rachael "congratulations!" on another magazine cover. Her quilts are so original, creative and happy, they really deserve loads of attention. Don't you think?

I was only thinking of Rachael yesterday. Please pass on my best wishes. And her helpers have done a lovely job of this blogpost! Who knew Barbie and Kewpie were so clever!

I'm joining the girls in celebrating another wonderful quilt in print. It's great that lots of people get to share your work.

Dawn said...

Awesome! Now keep following that little bobble and button trail to find your way home. Missed you!

Vickie said...

Over Blue Mountains and into the woods to grandmothers house you go ! LOL I haven't been blogging much either, just sewing for charity events mostly.

Jeneta said...

I have got to tell you (again) how much I always love your photos!!! Yo-yo's a la Mode looks beautiful draped over that lovely chair.

Very fun quilt to open up and see in a magazine! Exciting for you I bet. I'm sure it never gets old to see your own quilts in a publication.:)

Pinkadot Quilts said...

This was a fun post to open! I love that you are in yet another magazine. I will look for it here and hopefully find it. I did get the Simply Moderne and was disappointed that there wasn't more about you in there (-:

Shay said...

Very excited that your absence has been due to wonderful things and not something yucky like work!

Im glad your okay. I have been wondering where you have been. Chasing rainbows and butterflys sound perfect.

Susan Mckee-Nugent said...

I give up! I cannot get that Quilters Companion anywhere. I don't belong to Facebook and that is one place to get it and the other site wouldn't accept my pay pal.......GRRRRR I aught to be able to make this up !!!
