The British summer, so far at least, has been nothing short of underwhelming – but we're still feeling optimistic and this month the mag embraces an unapologetically bold tropical trend.

Be daring with energising greens and splashes of flamingo pink, tear up the rule book and choose sunny, feel good shades that make you smile. Whatever the weather, pick a project from this issue to bring the sunshine to your sewing…

It felt like I had to choose a team before I leapt into the quilting ring – either I was going to do classic, traditional patchwork or I was going to create more abstract ideas with bold and bright fabrics… no in…
