hello spring

The sun will come out tomorrow! Or the day after. Maybe next week? Come rain or shine, the Love Patchwork & Quilting team has spring fever and we think it might be catching! The clocks are about to go forward and we're basking in those extra daylight hours (no more choosing fabric in awful artificial light, hurrah!). Meanwhile outside there's a whole new seasonal colour palette popping up. So this month we've curated a whole host of projects that will have us all raiding our stash and taking inspiration from the great outdoors. After all, there's nothing like building a colourful bundle of fabric for your next creation to help you swing into spring! Love our new look? Let us know...
