editor’s journal

The weather may be dull outside for those of us in the southern hemisphere, but the contents of this magazine are warm and vibrant! From the vivacious colours and textiles of India through to eight stunning quilt projects, you will find lots of inspiration and motivation.It was a pleasure to write the Armchair Travels of a Textile Lover for this issue. I headed off on my own armchair journey as I researched all the wonderful textile activities that can be seen, learned and purchased in India. We started in Delhi, India’s capital, and moved south through Rajasthan, a beautiful region filled with India’s age-old opulence and grandeur and well known for its textiles. We then headed for Gujarat, India’s western-most state, and Ahmedabad, where the Calico Museum of Textiles displays…

michele’s quilt

Chris is well known for her foundation piecing techniques. In this quilt she uses freezer paper templates for the four centre machine-pieced blocks and the border hexagons are English paper pieced. After she created the hexagons and stitched them together, they were then hand-appliquéd to the borders. The central four blocks are a traditional vintage block that is named Progressive, and using lively fabrics in the blocks and hexagons makes this quilt look modern. Chris has used fabrics from her stash to create this gorgeous quilt — you can dig into your stash too!Finished size: 166.5cm (65½in) square Finished block size: 19in squareDesigner — Chris JurdPatchwork FUNdamentals@patchworkfunchris.jurd@bigpond.comStash BusterMaterials• 16 squares, 5in of assorted print fabrics (A shapes)• Fat eighth of four black or grey print fabrics (B shapes)• 16 squares,…

chain links

At first glance this looks like an easy quilt as the basis of the quilt is one block repeating. However, care needs to be taken that you continue the colours in the right places to ensure you don’t ‘break’ the chain, making this quilt challenging for an advanced beginner.The quilt will look equally as gorgeous, of course, with the links being scrappy if you can’t get your head around matching up the sections to complete your links/chain or don’t have enough lengths to make a whole chain link in one colour.Finished size: 168cm (66½in) squareFinished block size: 13in squareDesigner — Sue BelleliQuilted Hugs By Suesbelleli@bigpond.net.auJelly Roll FriendlyMaterials• One Jelly Roll; Sue recommends looking for one that has three contrasting colours or values for the best results.
