Just in case I haven’t shamelessly plugged it enough – did you know I’m part of a fabulous new digital magazine called Make Modern? I know right! I kept that one quiet didn’t I!
You can find a little free preview on Issuu – gives you a bit of a feel for what the magazine is like and what sort of things you can find inside.
Well in case you don’t know much about it yet, we have a month-long blog hop where you can meet a bunch of the makers and find out a little bit about their projects as well as about the makers themselves. And today’s my day!
So my project! Of course it’s paper pieced. I’m sure people sometimes wonder if I know how to do anything else! But I have fun and that’s what counts right? So while mulling over my inaugural project and brainstorming with Jane, Miss Betty started demanding more attention. She was a bit sick of being stuck in the kitchen for the year long Sew Kitschy BoM. She decided it was time to learn how to quilt. Here she is with her new hobby – admiring pretty fabrics.
She’s a bit fancy in her domino dots dress (sneaking suspicion that she may have made it herself – she may be new to quilting, but she’s not new to sewing!). And of course her stack of fabric is made up of her favourite colours – red and aqua. Nice eye for colour there Betty.
So you can find this project, amongst a bunch of other awesome ones in the very first issue of Make Modern. You can pick up a single copy, or subscribe from our shop on our website www.makemodern.com.au.
And do make sure you follow along on the rest of the blog hop! So much awesomeness to see!
