Would you mind very much indulging me while I
brag tell about my cover photo on the front of the new 2016 Quilter's Desk Diary! I was browsing Amazon one morning a few weeks ago and it popped up the 'you may also like' section, (I get caught with that all the time!) I thought, "I recognise that cushion!? Oh, it's MY cushion!". It's an image taken from the 50 Fat Quarter Makes book I contributed to last year, and the same publisher releases this desk diary each year.
I'm so honoured to be the chosen photo for the cover, what a compliment! I can tell you, this will be kept in my 'scrapbook' of sorts and enjoyed for many years to come.
It features lots of inspirational quilts and projects from a wide range of quilters on every page and a week-to-view diary page on the opposite side, with plenty of space for notes and important dates.
It also has a full page shot of the brilliant 1718 Coverlet quilt, I just adore this. It's a reproduction made by members of the British Quilt Guild, in commemoration of the original quilt, which is the earliest known British patchwork quilt to have a date worked into the piece. It comes from the fascinating book 'The 1718 Coverlet', there's a Facebook group who are doing quilt-a-long alongside Susan Briscoe, the author.
You can find copies of the 2016 Quilter's Desk Diary at Sew and Quilt now.
Have a great weekend! Jessie
