Make It Like Mine!

Let's Meet on Saturday...

It's the 1st of March and Vignette Issue 6 is offically out! If you already have your copy I really hope that you are enjoying every page, if you don't have a copy yet check your local patchwork store (available worldwide) or your favourite online store:

L806 - cover - small [10]
Issue 6 is packed full of projects to keep you stitching and articles to enjoy reading. One of my favourite projects is one you can tackle in a day - A French Linen Quilt:

Something (just a little bit) bigger is the Vignette In Stitches Quilt! This issue we undertake Blocks 10 & 11. Lots of you are enjoying the pleasures of a big project and I'm so excited each time I see what you're up to:

I had so much fun (and took so many photos!) for this issue that I will be expanding on the arctiles right here on the blog for you over the next little while, like the story on Ballarat Patchwork:

In the meantime I am looking forward to meeting lots of you this coming Saturday:

This is an opportunity to see many of my original samples that you may not have seen before, including the projects from each issue of Vignette. If you are still thinking about making the Vignette in Stitches Quilt this would be the perfect time to come along and see my version thus far (I do have to keep the remaining blocks a little bit secret). Gail B's has made up extra packs with the exact fabrics that I have used, as well as having them on the bolt. This is your opportunity to get a few simple tips from me about stitchery as well. I will be demonstrating using the beautiful screen printed hanky linen kits now available with some of my projects:

This is a perfect project to use up some of your scraps from the Vignette In Stitches Quilt too!

Hope to see you Saturday if you're a local girl,

Hi Leanne
Issue 6 arrived yesterday in the mail from Under the Mulberry Tree, and I've had a lovely read of it. Linen is also a big favourite of mine!! Enjoyed reading all about the brilliant stores in Ballarat and Castlemaine ... may be time for a re-visit! Cheers, Trudy

Ulla's Quilt World

Your quilts/crafts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!

I wished I lived closer to! NZ is a bit far to 'pop' over!
I love the sewing roll and there are favourite block.

So wished I lived closer (I'm in sunny Qld)! I would love to meet you in person. I love your style of work and have many of your patterns. I am really enjoying Vignette Magazine also.
Have a great time on Saturday


Would love to join you on Saturday, Leanne, but distance is a little problem ... have a great day on Saturday :-)
