Sugar Pie

Last year I made a quilt called "Sugar Pie".  It uses  a sweet, updated version of an old block called 'Ladies' Fancy'.


I had a lovely time colouring in the wedges.  Well, actually, going through my stash finding fabric that was fun and charming.  When I came across the background fabric I almost swooned.  It was just sooo perfect.  I bought everything left on the bolt and used it all up.


Not a great photo, I'm sorry.  The quilt was hand quilted using mainly Perle 12, which is finer than Perle 8.  For a better idea you could always purchase the magazine it is printed in.  Australian Quilters Companion "Old  Quilts Made New" has just hit the newstands. 





Back soon, promise.

So are you saying, in your humble way, that YOUR quilt is featured in this magazine? If so, that is very cool! I've never seen the Australian magazines in my neck of the woods. Shucks!
