Turkish Delight

Down Under Quilts

Hey check out the cover of the next issue of Down Under Quilts.  Yes I realise this is a brag but I couldn't figure a tactful way of saying they like my quilt and have put it on the cover!! It will soon be on sale in shops and newsagents.  But if you want an early edition then sign up for a subscription either online or hard copy..... both land in the hands of subscribers, before they hit the newsagents.

This issue has the first part of the instructions to my Turkish Delight quilt. It is made of hand-dyed fabrics in a medallion style with a series of different borders making it up to quite a large quilt. But you can stop before completing all of the borders I did! 

Check it out and let me know what you think. Pick up a copy at your local newsagent or patchwork shop or go online for your free subscription - visit and sign up now. 

Plus, there are lots of other great projects, fantastic quilts and interesting stories too. 

PS Take a look at Down Under Quilts' facebook page too!... but I've lost the link... you should be able to pick it up at the creativelivingmedia website.

Isobel's Flight

Well I don't know what Isobel will actually call this quilt but Isobel's Flight is what I have named the block. Yes this is the actual quilt that the block was originally designed for. I love the continuous path.. you follow it hoping to find the error..but there is none:)

Didn't she do a top job? I think she is making it for one of her grandsons. I can't wait to see it in the flesh... hopefully she enters it into the Sydney show this year.
