Quilt shows are so inspiring. You can chat to fellow fabric fanatics and top up your stash (ahem!) but the incredible art on display is often what really stands out. The sheer time and effort that goes into each piece is breath-taking, but can also be a little intimidating if you're new to the craft. If you've been looking at pics from Festival of Quilts on Instagram and thinking, "I could never do that", just remember every quilter there probably started out with plain ol' squares. With that in mind we've got lots of fab projects in this issue to help you hone your skills, whether that's perfecting HSTs, curves or paper piecing. So dive in and try something new. You'll be amazed at what you can achieve! Join us online...…

Nautical but nice Hot on the heels of her striking summery designs for issues 61 and 63 of LP&Q , Kristi Schroeder proves there's no rest for the quilty with yet another pattern release.

If you've got your hands on a copy of issue 64, you may have read our column 'Give a little TLC' by Suzy Williams on caring for your sewing machine. Here, she explains that every machine is different and recommends oiling your sewing machine every three bobbins. While this may be true for front loading bobbin machines, please note that you should avoid oiling Brother and other top loading bobbin machines as this can damage the machine. If you're unsure about your sewing machine, always consult the manual for your machine.…
