simple piecing

It’s hard to strike the right tone here when there is so much uncertainty in the world, and I have no idea what may have shifted and changed by the time this goes to print, let alone reaches your hands. I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well, and I hope that you are starting to get back some normality in your day to day lives. Goodness knows we are all ready for some stability! For me quilting has been one happy constant (even when the magazine was on pause). The familiar rhythm of press, cut, sew, repeat has been like a meditation most days to help slow my racing mind. This issue we bring you a collection of simple, classic blocks so that you too can…

like a boss

Foundation Paper Piecing pro Berene of Happy Sew Lucky sure has a way with words. Her latest pattern follows her ever-popular tattoo quilt blocks to tell all of us to "Sew like a boss!". The block was inspired by the feeling of success after tackling a tricky task, with skill-builders included to help take your own sewing up a notch – think tiny piecing, high accuracy and a Y-seam thrown in for good measure. Coming in at 16in square, the block is the ideal size to use with Berene's Big Ass Bag pattern… you can't get a more perfect pairing! happysewluckyshop.etsy.com FOLK DANCE The Thread House team Jo Avery, Karen Lewis and Lynne Goldsworthy have created this stunning Folk Dance Quilt, setting quilters up to receive monthly patterns over the course of…

be yourself

“Be yourself”, it’s a phrase that’s been repeated time and time again to school-aged children everywhere. A two-word PSA in the form of well-intentioned-yet-ridiculous inspirational posters, cheap t-shirts and school murals the world over. A personal favourite: “Be YOUnique!” (Insert eye roll here). And yet, behind this hackneyed mantra lies truth – an important life lesson that, believe it or not, actually carries over into the colourful world of quilting. Just like one’s personal clothing preferences or interior decorating aesthetic, quilters have their own personal style when it comes to the projects they create. There’s an abundance of styles within the quilting world: traditional, modern, minimalist, maximalist, improvisational, abstract… the list goes on and on. So how does one decide what suits them best? The truth? Are you sitting down for…
