I’ve been meaning to share this with you for a while and I know some of you have already seen the April issue of Homespun magazine!
I called the quilt Neon Pop due to the mix of colours and the cassette tapes print that are the main feature fabric of the quilt. It was great to see the pictures when the magazine was published, to see how they decided to style it.
The design is fairly traditional but given a modern twist with the fabric choices. All of the fabric are homespun solids apart from the print which is Cassettes in White from the Riley Blake Geekly Chic range. Amy Adams is the designer, you can check out her lovely blog post about this quilt here on her blog Penny Candy.
The article I wrote for Homespun is a full tutorial sharing how to create the quilt yourself.
On the final page of the article is an interview and profile of me! Very cool seeing myself in print!
It’s been lovely to share this achievement with family and friends, especially my Nan who isn’t online so she doesn’t really see what I blog about (although she does see all the finished projects!)
You can check out my Neon Pop quilt in the April 2014 issue of Homespun, and for those of you not in Australia you can download the digital version quite easily through the app store. Feels like so long ago – I made this quilt in September 2013 and submitted it in October. I’ve kept it a secret for so long it’s nice to be able to finally show it to everyone!
Shhh…don’t tell but occasionally I do bring out my old cassettes and listen to mix tapes I made as a very young teenager. Digital play lists just aren’t the same!
