dare to be bold

They say that colour can affect your mood, and at a time of year where I commute to work in the dark, get home when it’s dark, and spend my days largely surrounded by quilts, you’d better believe I’m making those quilts colourful! This issue is all about colour, from the sunny shades of FIGO Fabrics’ Garden Jubilee collection in our cover quilt, to the must-have mint tone of this issue’s point trimmer tools. Tiffany Horn’s quilt and mini are a masterclass in sewing with a rainbow of solids… just you try and be in a grump after working on those beauties! We’ve got a new Block of the Month series starting this issue too, where you can sew stunning star blocks by the talented Wendy Chow, and make your…

45-DEGREE TRIMMER 1 Place the 45-degree trimmer in one corner of your fabric piece, aligning the edges of the trimmer and fabric. Trim away the corner at one edge. Then repeat the process in any other 45-degree corners, as is shown in Fig 1. Repeat with all of your triangle pieces. 2 When sewing the pieces, place right sides together, and align the flat edges of the pieces at the corners. This will work for any 45-degree angled pieces, including both HSTs and Economy Blocks. As the dog ears have been trimmed, you won’t have to guess about any overhanging edges. Sew together and press seams open or to one side as you prefer (Figs 2–3). 60-DEGREE TRIMMER 3 Place the trimmer in one corner of your cut fabric piece, and carefully align the…

it’s all relative

We just can’t take our eyes off of the Relativity Quilt by Taylor Krz (Toad & Sew). Taylor wanted to ‘rebel against the modern quilting world’ with this unique quilt that shuns traditional quilting patterns in favour of a design that feels more like an abstract artwork. And an artwork it certainly is: the quilt pattern comes with an in-depth guide to understanding colour theory (a technique which will come in handy again and again) and its use of 3D optical illusions was inspired by the artist M.C. Escher, creating an incredible, mind-boggling effect. FESTIVE FABRIC Have you visited our website, Check it out for tutorials, templates, bonus projects, pattern corrections and much more!

meet the quilter: nina dodge

How did you first get into quilting? My first quilt was a queen size quilt that I made in college as a Christmas present for a boyfriend. Looking back, I did so many things wrong, I’m sure it’s no longer usable. I started quilting again when my friends began having babies. The first quilt I made that I think really defines my current style was for a friend who paints sunsets. I wanted to make her a quilt that felt like ‘her’, so the sunset design came into being. What’s your all-time favourite quilt pattern? My favourite pattern is my NightSky Quilt pattern (top right). I have made hundreds of these in all different variations. Every time I make it, I’m depicting a new landscape. So the land colours change, and the slope of…
