welcome!

What strange times we are living in! As I write this, we are still in the midst of lockdown. Confined to our homes, we are all trying to find the new ‘normal’. Be that working from home while trying to look after kids, being separated from family and friends or working on the frontline making sure everyone is looked after. But this also means we have more time on our hands (when we aren’t doing the daily tasks of life), which quilters around the world are always trying to find. We are hearing a lot of people are diving into their stash of WIPs, finishing off projects that have been lurking in the back of cupboards or at the bottom of craft stashes for months if not years!

sewing finds

THE PROJECT AMELIA MINI QUILT Designer Rose Johnston runs her Etsy shop, Threadbare Creations, which features a mixture of mini quilts and larger designs using a combination of traditional and paper piecing, with some FPP thrown in too. We love the summery colours in this design, which is also a great scrap buster for your stash. The downloadable PDF pattern includes full sized FPP templates, full assembly instructions and diagrams for ease of construction. THE BOOK TREASURE HUNT In this book, you get to follow a team of antique-quilt mavens as they share how their search for quilts from the past turned into present-day quilt patterns. With decades of knowledge about vintage textiles between them, authors Linda Collins and Leah Zieber share 13 quilts inspired by antique finds from their own collections. Packed with photos…

the asteraceae quilt supplement

“My favourite thing about sharing my designs is that people will often make better versions than mine. It’s really satisfying to see designs reach a potential that I wouldn’t have dreamed up myself.”- Jodi Godfrey, Tales of Cloth Hand sewing, especially English Paper Piecing, is not a fast way to create. And that is okay. Sometimes, it’s good to sit down, have a breather and take your time creating something precious. Whether you sew alone or with your family infront of the telly, if you like stitching in the garden or on your favourite sofa next to the window with a cuppa at hand, the beauty of this method is that it doesn’t matter. Stitch by stitch, you slowly build up your quilt, adding pieces and growing your design until one…

show & tell

A bespoke addition I’m really proud of my latest quilt, so thought I’d send in a photo of it to my favourite magazine, which has provided so much inspiration since I’ve been a subscriber. We had an extension built two years ago and I finally finished this matching orange & teal toned quilt for our new cosy area! I’ve been quilting for two years and designed this myself. Rachael, Worthing Your design is gorgeous, Rachael – we adore the colourway you’ve used! Stashbusting beauty! I have always loved crazy quilting – I also love embroidery, so when I saw Carolyn Forster’s colourful Herringbone design in issue 57, I immediately wanted to make it. I love its colourful Bohemian look, and an added bonus was that I was able to make it entirely from my fabric…
