keeping it simple

We’re aiming at filling your winter weekends this issue, with five projects you can complete in two days or so – and a few more you could manage in a long weekend. It’s likely to be dark, chilly, and wet, so there’s nothing better to combat winter than a few hours sewing with a hot drink (and in my case, ‘helpful’ kittens. I’ll be learning to love furry fabric). We’re looking forward to the new spring fabric collections (turn to page 9 for some favourites): my only problem is going to be where to stop! I’m happy to go for all sorts of colours in my stash, especially when prints are involved. This year is the first time that the Pantone Color of the Year will in fact be two colours…

CUTTING OUT 1 For each block you will need to cut four pieces for each template. Make sure the Template 2 and 3 pieces are cut from contrasting fabrics. Template 1 can be cut from fabric that either matches or contrasts with the Template 2 piece, depending on the look that you want to achieve (Fig 1). 2 Cut Template 1 pieces from a 2›in strip of fabric.

To cut the next piece, turn the template 180-degrees, then cut along the straight side and curved edge (Fig 2). 3 Cut Template 2 pieces from 3½in squares. Align the two straight corners of the template with the edges of the…

Come full circle If you, like many other quilters, struggle to make the perfect circle, then set your sights on Applipops. Create flawless turned edge fabric circles in 90 seconds (is that a challenge?!) to use in fun appliqué projects or at the centre of a Dresden Plate.

new year, new plans

Ah, the new year. If ever there was a year that we all need a fresh start, I think 2021 is it. I’m not typically one for making New Year’s resolutions, but I do tend to use the milestone to evaluate what I want out of the coming year. Some people choose a word each year as a symbol or motto of how they’d like to live, and I find that more appealing than making a drastic, often unrealistic goal right before the three most depressing months of the year (in my hemisphere, at least). If 2020 has taught me anything, it’s to appreciate and nurture the most basic aspects of life. 2020 forced my family and I to simplify our way of living. We made the decision to stay home…
