Cover Girl...Take 2...

I had the biggest shock this week when the quilt I had designed from the gorgeous Grey Abbey collection...the beautiful Cloud 9 fabric by talented designer Elizabeth Olwen...was given front cover status on this month's Love Patchwork & Quilting.


This fabric was an absolute delight to work with. Firstly it is Cloud 9 fabric, which in case you don't know is a beautiful organic cotton with the loveliest feel. 


Secondly the collection by Elizabeth is one of those collections that works so beautifully as a whole and doesn't need much more than the simplest of piecing to let the fabrics do the talking.


I really enjoyed every single second of working on this quilt and seeing LP&Q's stunning styling on it makes me feel very very proud.


This is yet another winning issue and is full of the most gorgeous projects. I think my favourite, if you were to pin me down to state one,  of which I will certainly be making, are the gorgeous boho pompom cushions by Jo Avery.


If you have your issue already I am sure you are enjoying it and if you haven't just yet, don't worry you are in for a real treat.
