As soon as I knew that there was going to be a new Canadian Quilt magazine I signed up for a year’s subscription…at least to give it a shot. I am definitely NOT dissatisfied with the first issue! Quilter’s Connection Magazine is very good!
There are two projects that are calling to me:
It’s a Christmas wall-hanging with a rustic feel to it…plaids and buttons and felt! I have just found Laurraine’s website and so want to make her teacup paraphanalia! This pattern is definitely added to my to-do list!
And this one…
FINALLY! A Stitchery in the Australian style IN Canada! I don’t think that this will get done for this Christmas but I am definitely excited to plot and plan it! The designer, Dougal Ann Walker lives in BC and has other patterns that combine stitchery and applique into quilting. I don’t see a link for a website for her but I am on the hunt to check out her other patterns!
So my afternoon was spent with tea in hand, reading and dreaming of quilting delights! What more can the doctor prescribe? 🙂 If you live in Canada, check out the newsstands! A very good read. If you don’t live in Canada, check out the magazine site! And no, I’m not promoting the magazine 😉
Off to stitch my slow-going needlebook! I have changed material and feel better about it!
