Introducing Nova from A Cuppa and a Catch-Up

Sweet Nova is one of the contributors from Sew to Swap...and I love her creativity.
She uses upcycled materials often, has an artistic touch, and is not afraid to try new things.
She herself calls her style ‘random eclectic‘ :)

 (quilted magnets, eeek!)


So this is the project that inspired me to write the "My Favorite Things" swap in the book Sew to Swap.
Nova has been corresponding with her Mum on this red work quilt, and when I saw it I knew it would be a wonderful project for quilt swaps.
Adding hand-embroidered blocks to squares is a lovely way to personalize a modern quilt, wouldn't you say?  Thanks Nova, for the inspiration!

Here's a little picture of the redwork sampler we created in Sew to Swap inspired by Nova's piece:

Check out Nova's tutorial page here
and her flickr page here

And definitely don't forget to stop by her blog hop today...she's giving away this amazing pillow!!!

Thanks Nova!
