It's a family affair!

Today the postman brought great joy in the form of Issue 2 of Quilt Now! Along with the full size pattern sheet there's a square quilting ruler this month.
I've already given you a peek at the Block of the Month project so I won't bore you with that again, but I will show you the blocks for the quilt. Those Art Gallery Fabrics really sing in Dresden fans!
This month Yvonne puts in an appearance too as she has done a reader review!
I also came across this advertisement for the West Country Quilt Show which my sister-in-law is helping to organise. Definitely worth a look for anyone in the area or anyone that doesn't mind travelling to these events!
So, like I said, it's a family affair this month :) Most exciting to me though is that one of my favourite designs to date is featured! Regular visitors will be very familiar with my Sneaky Stars design that I created last year for Justine at Simply Solids to kit for Festival of Quilts. Now I'm delighted that anyone who buys Issue 2 will have access to the pattern too. There were quite a lot of lovely people interested in the pattern last year so I'm hoping that they will still love it and have a go!
It's great to see it photographed and styled by professionals!
For the benefit of those who didn't see my original posts it's works very well in different styles too. Here are 2 others I made last year - The Man Quilt and a quilt for James.
Now I'll leave you all to enjoy the weekend, although I may pop back tomorrow if I can summon the energy to show you a rather lovely charity shop find in the form of a hand-crank Singer! Catch you soon x


  1. Well done you clever Niceties girls! I've got my mag but am saving it for a tomorrow afternoon indulgence - a flick shows me lotsa pretty things, though!

  2. Well done you creative bunch! Such a lovely photo of Y! Jxo

  3. It is not fair mine has not come yet!! good to have a sneak peek, will be seeing Justine in a couple of weeks at our MQG, loved her quilt that was in last months edition

  4. It's another wonderful issue, all the better for having Nellie's girls in it!

  5. Lots of congrats to you all. Can't wait to get my issue when it comes out. x

  6. I was very pleased to see Sneaky Stars, not sure I will ever have time to make one but I do love it.
