New Zealand Quilter magazine

Some of you will remember my scrappy bear's paw quilt that I made in 2015.  If you don't, you can read more about it here.  It's now featured in the latest issue of New Zealand Quilter (issue 95).



I was thrilled to be asked if they could include my quilt in the magazine. There's also an article about our guild, Capital Quilters, and photos of the scrappy bear's paw quilts all hanging around the hall at our Christmas meeting. 

Each issue they feature a New Zealand blogger in the magazine.  Look who it is this issue! 


Yes, it's me and my Home and Away quilt.  I might provide a close up photo of the text for overseas readers in a few months time.  Meanwhile NZ readers should rush out and buy a copy.  There's also a great article about Sophie Wood - a very talented New Zealand quilter. And photos from the Stonestead Outdoor quilt festival featuring quilts made by some of my friends at Capital Quilters.

It's going to take quite a few days to read all the articles and soak up all the lovely photos in this issue.

Congratulations on your double exposure in the magazine!

What a thrill to be asked, I was approached many years ago after my guild published a travelogue in our newsletter to have it redone for a province wide quilting newsletter. That lead to an invite for another piece in the Canadian Quilter's Newletter magazine along with some of my photos.

Your quilt is so nicely photographed.

Sadly, I have never seen this mag available for sale here in Oz. I would be dashing out to buy a copy just for your articles otherwise. :(
