Australian Quilters Companion

This month we were featured in TWO sections,
as well as on the cover of an Australian quilt magazine!
(see above)

The first section showcases a quilt that uses one of our earlier fabric lines, Botany. It’s designed by Liz Pinczewski and quilted by her friend, Adri, a professional long arm quilter… both from Australia. The quilt is called Coco’s Midnight Garden… named after her dog, Coco. (We’re all over the “quilts named after pets” idea… my mom once designed a quilt that we have hanging up in our studio named Rudy Rules… after our sweet boy, Rudy.)

Liz has a super cute write-up about the whole experience on her blog, Quilterie.

Her quilt design is a nice modern take on the traditional Log Cabin block, and it’s especially great because it requires only 1 jelly role… plus batting, backing, and some dark background fabric… which is awesome… jelly roles definitely make it possible to use an entire line of fabric without completely breaking the bank!

The second article that we’re in is actually a write-up… ON US! Entitled “Meet the Jungs: Lauren and Jessi”. And as far as write-ups go, this covers everything… each of our backgrounds, our start-up, the team dynamics, our first two fabric lines, plus, about ten photos of various projects we’ve done using these two lines. It’s absolutely unbelievable… And really, a bit surreal… and we both couldn’t be happier with it!

(This magazine is published in Australia, however it’s available here in the US at various book stores as well as Amazon… but I haven’t seen this particular issue yet…. probably later on this summer.)

    Did you post a basically all white quilt with several colored squares in the middle in your past issue?
    I found the picture and fell in love with it and now I can’t find the magazine for purchase…..
