"Metro Waves"

Let me introduce you to "Metro Waves".  Our first official Metro Series Quilt!

 This quilt was done up this last summer for Quilters Companion ~ Modern Edition Magazine an Australian Magazine.

This design, though not very original has been one I've wanted to do since coming up with the QCR.  It's a very simple and fun design to do up!  The pattern is available in the Magazine and I will also have one available in a few months.

I shared some close-ups of my quilting this last summer.


I believe the Magazine comes out in just a few days.  I know it is on it's way to me....but I haven't received it yet and I'm getting very anxious!

There will also be a spread about me as a designer in the magazine also!


When I was approached about having a quilt in their magazine,  I was completely surprised and excited.  One of my first Wholesale Orders was to a shop in Australia and since launching the QCR I have had such great support from Quilters in Australia.

I'll post more about the quilt and the Magazine Article when I have them both in my possession...but for now, I just wanted to share this exciting news, it's a first for me!

Congratulations! This quilt is absolutely gorgeous - sometimes simple is better. The more I see of your quilts make with the Quick Curve Ruler, the more I want one. Do you know if it is stocked anywhere in New Zealand?

Congrats! I think this might be one of my fave patterns so far, but I'm really into minimalist lately!

I cannot believe this! I tried to make something like this last weekend with my QCR, but couldn't quite get it to come together. I was going to email you to see if you could help me. Great minds think alike!
I will send you my idea...

Karin said...

what a fun quilt! Love it! Makes me wonder what it would look like if you sewed every other row the opposite - it would maybe be like a rolling wave?

Alycia said...

Wow - that is quite stunning. The quilting is amazing. Congrats!!!

Alexandra Wellington said...

Hey congrats!!!! That is my favourite Australian magazine and you so totally deserve to published with a story about your incredible talent. You are an awesome quilter and designer....how about publishing a book on your longarming techniques and then coming here to Sydney, Australia to teach???????????
I have room for you on the northern beaches really pretty area....just a wild thought!

It's a really striking quilt. If it's easy/simple, it sure doesn't look it. Nice! And congrats again!
