I’m so happy to finally share the wintery project I finished in September with you – pretty unusual for a last-minute kind of girl like me.
I was approached by the German Patchwork Guild to create a table runner, using Modern Handcraft‘s modern hexies method for their Christmas issue. The magazine came out over the weekend and it was pretty neat to see my first published project in print!
My idea was to create a winter themed quilt rather than a Christmas-y one, so I could leave it out for the entire season. This also leaves you all more time to recreate it, if this is what you want to do =)
Some of my favourite photos didn’t make the cut for the article, so I’m sharing them exclusively with you!
Even though I took these pics over two months ago the weather isn’t much different right now in Germany. After going an entire winter without a single snow day last year I was hoping 2014 would make up for it. No snow yet but I’m not giving up hope – White Christmas, I’m looking at you!!
Until then I’m petting my fabric snowflakes and keep being delusional ;-)
I’m thankful for being given the opportunity to getting my word out there by publishing this project. This guild is pretty focused on traditional quilters, so I feel especially honoured to being asked to contribute to their magazine.
What are you, as a quilter, proud of in 2014?
