choose colour!

Do you have a favourite colour? For most the answer is instinctive but it can be quite the conundrum for us quilters. I'm always thinking of colours in the context of my last quilt, my next quilt, and the overflowing drawers of fabric at home! I don't think I could choose just one. And then there are those new-to-me colour combinations that I would never be brave enough to put together (bright pink and lime green, anyone?) but in the hands of another quilter are a match made in heaven. As always this issue is bursting full of colour inspiration, so dive into your stash and take a cue from one of our talented designers... who knows where it might take you!

quilt in super-speed

Even if you're the type that enjoys spending decades on one design (English Paper Piecers, we're looking at you!) very little rivals the elation of when you're finally snuggled up under a handmade quilt. Speed up the process with your free booklet this month, that combines clever Irish Chain blocks to make a quilt you can whip up in a weekend! Not only is this quilt both quick and easy to follow, it's also incredibly straightforward to mix and match blocks to customise into your very own design. Pick and choose colours (our lovely sponsors Wool Warehouse stock every shade of Robert Kaufman's Kona Cotton Solids to choose from), before setting a weekend aside to snip and stitch up Nicole Calver's super-stylish pattern. Don’t forget to share your weekend quilts with us…

Fabric starch is a magical spray that stiffens fabric, making it easier for you to work with while quilting… especially when you’re sewing curves, complex patterns or venturing into stretchier fabrics.
