I have three quilts to make this year with anything else a bonus. Each quilt will be made using a pattern published in the American quilt magazine Better Homes & Garden's American Patchwork & Quilting. I started purchasing this magazine in April 2007 and haven't, as yet, made any of the projects. Don't get me wrong I love so many of the projects but I plan most of my quilts up to two years in advance because I have a limited budget.
The first quilt I am making this year is Paisley Parade designed by Laurie Simpson which featured in Quilt Sampler Fall/Winter 2008. I also decided to use quite a few of the original fabrics (not something I normally do). Here's how the quilt was photographed for the magazine.
Progress has been slow but we have a long weekend here in Australia for Australia Day so I might just spend some of it sewing.
