Just before all this happened we found out that we had a drainage problem with cracked pipes and a blockage and part of our paving had to be dug up and repairs made to our drainage system. We had a plumber here for 5 days and it cost $8,000!
I feel as if we have come out on the other side of the drama and life is getting back to normal now.
The latest Quilters Companion Great Australian Quilts no. 7 has arrived at newsagents and I have a project in it called Country Calls.
|Quilters Companion Great Australian Quilts no.7|
Quilters Companion contacted me earlier this year and asked me to make a crazy quilted wall hanging with an Australian theme.

I included all the instructions for foundation piecing the background and a full size pattern but for some reason they didn't publish it and just wrote that knowledge of foundation piecing is assumed!
It is set out nicely and includes some close up photos over 7 pages of the magazine.
Here are some photos that I took of the project.
The magazine is good value with projects by Sue De Vanny, Deb Layt, Dijanne Cevaal and
Margaret Rowe, who writes the Australian based quilting novels and as well as lots of other projects.
I am sure you won't be disappointed.
Bye for now,
