back to basics!

This issue is a love letter to solids. So often they are overlooked in favour of prints (don’t get me wrong, my stash is bursting with patterned fabrics too!) but we’d like to show you the beauty and simplicity that can come from working in a palette of solids alone. Solids let your quilt composition shine and with no busy prints to distract your eye the design, piecing and colours really pop! All of our designers this month have created their own masterpieces in solids, but as always we are just a spring-board for your own interpretation of the patterns. Throw in some prints, or swap solids for a soft blender to add more texture. You could even let your stash guide you to create a more scrappy version of…

dresden plate

CUT FROM STRIPS 1 Cut strips of fabric to the desired height of your Dresden blades, and neatly stack (Fig 1). You can use any size up to 6½in, but the intermediate marks can help you line up the ruler along the top edge. Place the ruler on the right end of the strips and cut along the right side (Fig 2). Rotate the strips so the cut edge is at the left. Place the ruler at the edge and cut the right side (Fig 3). Turn the ruler, align and cut again (Fig 4). Repeat until you have the desired pieces. FUSSY CUTTING 2 To fussy cut, align the ruler on your fabric as desired. Trace around the sides and bottom. For intermediate marks, add a line at each edge where you…

take the leap

I’ve been a creature of habit my entire life. Comfort zones are my jam, and I’ve spent the last thirty-odd years perfecting mine. My semi-introverted, risk-adverse, anxiety-ridden self is quite comfortable staying in my lane. My Friday night plans regularly consist of PJs, EPP and a good docu-series, and if I don’t have to leave the house for more than five days, well, I am living my best life. The magic of improper sewing has long eluded me. While I admire those who master the art, my perfectionist ways have proven quite the hurdle. That hasn't stopped me. For better or worse (probably the latter), my skills for avoiding the new and unknown tend to cross over into my hobbies as well. I learned to knit well before I learned to sew, and…
