New Subscription gift with issue 7
Issue 7 is now safely off at the printers and I can show you one of the final drafts of the front cover (if anything changed I’ll swap it out for the final one later!)
Tracy made it on to the cover with her GORGEOUS moebius wrap made out of a Tula Pink Jelly Roll. We have lots more of Tracy’s clver designs coming up in the magazine in the next few issues, I for one and impatiently awaiting the arrival of her latest creation next week (no pressure Tracy!)
The smocked dress is by Heather Ross and we made our sample using her totally gorgeous double gauze princess and the pea fabric. We have a quilt coming up in issue 9 that also uses this fabric, it is just the most beautiful print design ever and Heather was such fun to work with. Her interview questions made me want to get on a plane and go straight to New York and be her new best friend. Although I’m not sure she would have appreciated that!
The big floor cushion is made with the remainder of the Dogwood scraps that we had after making the yoyo quilt in issue 4 and the birds that you can see in the bottom right hand corner were made by the talented Jessie Quinn. We also have some great refashioning pieces in there, an amazing man’s shirt, a set of laptop bags, a feature on sourcing vintage fabrics, the next installment of our mystery quilt project and a cute embroidered T shirt by Janet Clare. Seriously, this is one of my favourite issues ever.
And while I’m talking of my favourite things our new subscription gift for issue 7 is amazing. In the spirit of wanting to give you something so perfect that you just can’t say no to the magazine we worked with our good friends at Clothkits to develop an exclusive gift that has been printed especially for you. I can’t show you what it looks like because we haven’t even seen the final version ourselves yet but its Clothkits, how can it not be gorgeous?
