I've been a bit speechless, in a good way, since seeing the cover of Quiltmania's newest publication Simply Moderne. Partly because I was busy falling off my chair in surprise, and then because I've been happy dancing and cheering with delight, 
because they chose my Bubbles quilt for the front cover!!
Yes, that's right, I'm a cover girl! 
Awesome huh?! 

Knowing the quality of Quiltmania's magazines and books, this is bound to be a great magazine to watch out for when it hits the news stands in June, or you will be able to order it from the Quiltmania website here. I for one can't wait to see what other fabulous projects are inside.

But wait there's more!!! 
I'm honoured to be the Featured Blogger in the May/June edition of Quiltmania! Here's the cover of the magazine,
 and here's me, with a big smile.

A huge thanks to Quiltmania for featuring my blog. I always try do my best to make Blue Mountain Daisy a fun place to visit. 

The third fabulous thing was receiving the email saying my entries into the 2015 Modern Quilt Show Australia had been accepted.  I'm so pleased to be able to be part of this show, it sounds like it's going to be amazing with lots of quilts, and workshops by the Material Obsession team. A big shout out to the Woollongong Modern Quilt Guild for organising such a great national event.  You can find out more information on their website here

Here are the show details 
When:  Saturday 10-4pm and Sunday 10-3pm 
Location: The Pavilion - Bong Bong St, Kiama

The venue is by the beach so not only will we get to see lots of amazing quilts but this mountains girl is looking forward to seeing the ocean and walking on the beach. I like to make little nature sketches in the sand using things I find. Just goes to show creativity can strike anywhere, anytime. I'll leave you with some photos of a few nature sketches I've made in the past.
