bright & beautiful

Hands up all those whose fabric stashes are threatening to take over the house? We thought so – you are not alone! This issue we’ve tasked our brilliant designers with taking a long hard look at their own stashes and producing some gorgeous quilts to help you make the most of yours. They’ve done a grand job, so you can enjoy revisiting that stash, or treat yourself to new fabric if you must! The long dark evenings this time of year are the perfect time to learn – or practise – a new skill too, so do take a look at Anna Brown’s wonderful Beginner’s Guide to Hand Quilting booklet this issue. Take a break from your sewing machine and relax with a needle and thread for a while. You’ll…

soothing stitching

What kind of quilter are you? Do you race your quilt sandwich through your machine at lightning speed, armed with quilting gloves, or do you take things a little slower and indulge your calmer side with some therapeutic hand sewing? This month we’re all about doing things the old-fashioned way, and we’ve got hand quilting enthusiast Anna Brown (although you may know her as Wax and Wane Studio) to give us all of her top tips and techniques to help you fall in love with hand quilting too. From the bare basics of the tools you’ll need to kick things off to the nitty gritty of tying knots, marking lines and achieving even stitches, Anna has left no topic untouched. Once you’ve absorbed all the wisdom there is to be had,…

There’s a trend in the modern quilt world that doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon… patchwork lettering! It’s a trend that we, for one, are particularly taken by, and Stephanie of Patch and Dot has only enhanced with her latest pattern, Blackletter Quilt. Piece up 26 Foundation Paper Pieced blocks to make a striking baby quilt (above) or mix and match Stephanie’s letter designs to spell out your own words.

name and shame

Ah, the Vault of Shame. The mysterious holding place of sewing projects gone by, woefully forgotten in favour of their newer and shinier counterparts. I’m often asked about the Vault of Shame. How many WIPs do I keep in there? What’s so shameful about it? Can I please, for the love of all that is holy, finally finish that quilt with that Anna Maria Horner line? So what do you say we put these questions to rest? To be honest, I have absolutely no idea exactly how many WIPs I have hoarded in the Vault of Shame. If I had to guess, I’d say it falls somewhere around three dozen. Why don’t I know the exact number? For the same reason I don’t know my exact weight. Nothing good can come…
