Quilt Now

Issue eight of Quilt Now magazine, is out on Thursday 12th February in the UK and I can’t wait to show you a preview.

I was commissioned by the editor Katy Jones, (yes, Katy Jones designer of Priory Square!) to design a monochromatic quilt with some “pop”.


I decided on Dark Navy and Smoke Grey with a little Punch (aptly named) and Orchid. Don’t you just love the way they have styled it – look at the sneaky flamingo peaking out ๐Ÿ™‚ – very exciting!


Fabric and thread kindly provided by Timeless Treasures and Gutermann.

And Katy is bringing me a copy out to QuiltCon in Austin next week – eek!
