Had to Show You First...

Hi Girls! It seems that you are all having a great time with your 'Vignette In Stitches' Quilts. I am thrilled to be seeing so many different versions that you are creating - so exciting. Some of the colour combinations are really inspiring me! I thought that I would give you a peek at the 1st March Issue 6 cover:

There are lots of projects in this issue and one of my favourites is 'A French Linen Quilt'. This is a quilt you can whip up in a day (really). Goodness knows you'll all be after me if I don't give you a break with something simple!!

Of course, I am really loving stitching and photographing the 'Vignette in Stitches Quilt' and when you receive your issue I hope you love all the photos that I had such a great time taking. I had already finished the photo shoot of all the 'pretty photos' (I usually shoot the step by steps as I am creating my own version of the quilt or as I am recutting and double checking) but then I decided to do a re-shoot!

Rosalie Quinlan and I had already been on a photo shoot for two days but when I woke up at 6am and the morning light was streaming through the french doors of my brothers place, Ena Casa, (see issue 3 for more of Ena Casa)I couldn't resist:

So it's all at the printer's at the moment as all the people over there work their magic.

I hope you are loving stitching your version, same as mine, or completely different, of the 'Vignette In Stitches Quilt'.

  1. I can't wait for the next issue even though I am far far behind. I want you to know that you, my nephew and his girlfriend have inspired me to start doing some traveling. At the age of 28, they sold everything and are on a year long adventure around the world. So inspiring!

  2. It looks great Leanne and as always you have beautiful inspirational delights for us all :) I look forward to reading it. Hugs Vicki x

  3. What great pictures. So bright n colorful.

  4. Beautiful cover Leanne. Can't wait to see the issue.

  5. Ramona, I promise you that you will not regret ever spending money on travel. The memories that you make and the people you meet along the way are amazing.Just think, you can finish your quilt while flying, waiting in airports, on the bus or train, just anywhere. You'd be surprised how many women come up to you when you're stitching and start a conversation. I have a lovely story about two women (one from Sydney and one from Melbourne) who met on train and became good friends beacuse they were both stitching one of my quilts! That's inspiration!
