It's here!!!

Big grin on my face opening the mail tonight - because this was in there:

I have been eagerly awaiting it; and of course I just have to share!!! *lol*

A full page picture of my SBS quilt on page 83 and some of my blocks have been used as illustrations.

Update: I just had to share another pic !

I feel so proud! And I'm so honoured and grateful to be a small part of this beautiful book!

Vitamin Q

This weekend was quilt class with fabulous and enthusiastic Hanne - and guess what she was teaching...... Dear Jane! Thank you for a fabulous class, Hanne! On the board and table behind her are some of the blocks she has stitched from this book -not to mention the quilts she brought to show - talk about janiac :o)

A group of chatty and eager ladies had brought needles and thread, some sewing machines and we worked in a steady pace yesterday and today. Lots of tecniques were demonstrated and tried out. This is my production over the weekend:

I managed to sew a Papa'a star!!! So proud of myself! *lol* These blocks will be used in a rather special project - more about that later :o)
