Cover Girl!!!

A few months ago, I noticed an ad in a magazine for the 2015 Quilters Companion diary with my Giant Chevron quilt on the cover. I didn't have any idea if it would be the actual cover or not - but then on Wednesday one of my co-workers at Frangipani Fabrics sent me a photo of the diary she'd found at a newsagency. AND IT HAS MY QUILT ON THE COVER!!!!


I'm obviously a wee bit thrilled about this - but as Cath said, wait there's more!!

My Roundabout quilt is Miss April.


Giant Chevron is Miss May.


And Breaking Storm is there - right on the same page as my birthday :oD!! Total random luck, but cool nevertheless ;o)


Forgive me for plastering this all over the interwebs today, but even the newsagent was excited for me - he commented that I was getting in early buying a diary for next year, so I had to explain why ;o) A couple of my Aussie quilty friends have quilts in there as well (Kristy and Jess) which is even better!!

Oh and just a quick note from one of my sponsors - Sew Me a Song is having a sale to celebrate national sewing month. You can take $10 off your purchase of $50 or more by entering the coupon code SEWSEPT at checkout. The coupon is good through until 8th September. 

Have a fabulous weekend!
xx Jess
