sunny side up

Today’s the first day since last summer that I’ve braved the commute to work without a coat. At last I can (literally) see the light at the end the long, wintery tunnel. It’s amazing what a little sunshine does for the mood – everybody is so much happier in the sun and I’m feeling energised enough to tackle that mountain of WIPs that I’ve been putting off all year. To celebrate the onset of summertime I want to spread a little of that magic with projects that embrace the season. Happily this month’s issue is all kinds of sunny – bursting with colourful fabrics to brighten your day. Whatever you're working on, we hope we'll bring you a little sunshine today!

Quilt for the holidays! We're loving this collaboration from Lindsey Neill of Pen + Paper Patterns (@penandpaperpatterns) and Meghan Buchanan of Then Came June (@thencamejune). The two quilty superstars have put their heads together to create four patterns inspired by major holidays: Valentine's, Christmas, Halloween and 4th July (for all you folks across the pond). Each quilt is a fast-finish, with an easy, modern, block-based design to follow. They'll also be hosting a casual sew-along for each pattern, so keep an eye on their social media pages to join in!

come to the dark side

You can use black bat ting when sewing high contrast quilts, such as black and white. This way, those black threads dont show up underneath your light fabric "When your quilt top includes lots of dark or bright fabrics such as reds, greens or blues, the deep black batting actually enhances the warmth and richness of a quilt top's intense,dark hues".SUZY QUILTS Black batting is like the black sheep of the batting world, quite literally – it’s a little edgy, a bit rebellious, and a lot less popular than its white batting counterpart. It may not become your go-to batting, but just like your misfit cousin, it’s welcome in your sewing room… as long as it behaves. I first heard about black batting a few years ago when I posted a question…
