time to sew

We’re so excited to share the final reveal of Yasmeen Kreebani Branton’s Block of the Month quilt this issue – it’s a hand appliqué triumph! We hope you’ve loved sewing it so far, and perhaps changing it up to make it your own. There’s no doubt we’ve all had more change than we expected over the last year or so, and I’m no exception! I’ll be leaving LP&Q for new horizons soon, and leaving you in the wonderfully creative, clever hands of Lorna, who has been working on the magazine for some years. I’ve had a delightful time here, working with the best team an editor could ask for, and it’s been truly awe-inspiring to work with the endless creativity not only of our superstar designers, but all our amazing…

Totally roarsome! Framed by a bouquet of bright blooms, this magnificent tiger is the new cat on the block from Canadian designer Julie Lapalme’s series of Floral Big Cats. This Foundation Paper Pieced block is the second design in the set so far (check out the matching Lion too) – we just can’t get enough of his hypnotic gaze, and Julie’s bold use of colour on a crisp white background. Available as a PDF download, the pattern for this 24in square block comes with lots of diagrams to help with the clever piecing.

quilted with love

Today we’re going to talk quilting! If I’m being honest, I’m one of the last people on Earth who should be giving any quilting advice… it’s the the part of the process that I least enjoy, and often put off as long as possible (anyone else?!). I’ve always struggled with it, physically and mentally. Physically, I find it quite tricky to sling a rolled-up quilt sandwich over my shoulder and slowly feed it through my machine. It’s a heavy process, and that’s just for straight-line quilting! You should see me try to twist and turn a lap-sized quilt under my machine needle. I'm a stickler about wanting my quilts to be entirely my own.It may take me much longer to finish,but when completed,they are100% my own,and I take great pride in that Mentally,…
