Australia issue of Down Under Quilts



Down Under Quilts 168, our special Australia issue, is now on sale. I am really happy with this issue - we feature Lucy Carroll, whose work I admire a lot, we have some great projects (love that Uluru quilt by Keith Wood) and share quilts from International Quilt Week Yokohama, the Canberra Quilt Show 2014 and A World of Colour.



My project for this issue are these Australia postcards - quick and easy to make, and great for sending to friends overseas!

The magazine comes with a free fat quarter of this lovely fabric:



I had fun thinking of small projects to make with this fabric. Of course you could also use it in a quilt!
