Rory's Rockets published

I was thrilled to get my copy of Australian Patchwork and Quilting Vol 18 No 12 today, because appearing on page 96 is Rory's Rockets! Of course, the first thing I noticed is that the quilt is upside down, but that won't make any difference to the instructions.
It's a beautiful single-bed quilt I designed and made on commmission for a little boy's first big bed, which he's about to move into.

(the right way up:)
I blogged plenty of photos of Rory's Rockets after I finished it back here - before I knew it was going to the magazine. In fact, I didn't know about that until after I'd sent it to it's owner, and she very graciously agreed to lend it back for photography, since the little boy was still in his cot. I hope he's enjoying his quilt now!

Congratulations, Emma. It's a beautiful quilt. And I can't believe the magazine editors didn't ask you which way was up. It's still beautiful though.

Wow that looks fantastic! lol at them putting it upside down, you'd think they would've asked you first. Neverless, it must be a great feeling to see it published.

Didn't get my APQ this week so will have to assume I'll get it in the mail next week. Can't wait for it now, that quilt, as always, is gorgeous!
