Recycled Cotton Shirt Quilt - Craft Stylish Magazine Article

I'm very excited to have my second magazine article coming out next week (17th Feb) with the folks at CraftStylish. My article tells you how to turn your old cotton shirts into a simple but snuggly quilt ... mentioned on the front cover no less! I love the cover of the magazine - crafty yet stylish don't you think? Here is a sneak peak at the article ... I hope I don't get in trouble for sharing a couple of days early ...
... I am just THRILLED at how yummy and cosy my quilt looks in this photo!

wow! You have really hit your stride this year Rachael - that's fantastic! - and it is a lovely cosy looking quilt :-) Would love to see the whole magazine but alas I don't think it is exported to Australia - never mind, you'll just have to post more photos.

Well done you - it looks lovely!

There's is something very special and sentimental about snuggly shirt quilts - especially when you know the person who used to wear the shirts.

Well congratulations. I have to admit, that magazine has escaped my notice so far, but will definitely have to seek it out now. So you can tell them you are bringing new readers as well as articles.
