seasonal style

Frosty mornings, crackling fires, festive foliage... it's easy to feel inspired by winter's dramatic colours and textures and be drawn to the amazing quilt designs that pay homage to them. And it looks like all our designers have fallen under the spell of winter this month too, offering up a cool and crisp array of projects that not only celebrate the indulgences of the season through fabric and stitch, but encourage us to slow down and take the time to enjoy all the little things that we love about quilting – hooray! From a soothing snowdrift blanket to a present-packed throw, meditative curves to a smattering of EPP stars, you'll find something seasonal (and calming) to make on every page. Join us online... we love to share! LovePatchworkandQuilting LoveQuiltingMag LoveQuiltingMag www.lovepatchworkandquilting.com…

conquer curves

Do you remember learning to ride a bike? In my case, I would have been quite content to cruise around the neighbourhood with my training wheels still attached to my bike until my bags were packed for college. My dad, on the other hand, would never have allowed it. You see, I was blessed/cursed with a father who wouldn’t let me quit. I guess now I’m happy to not be a 32 year old scooting around with training wheels, (I’m actually not sure I could find some to fit my bike) but at the time I was learning, I didn’t see it that way. I only saw pavement, handle bars and fear. I can’t remember if I fell off while practising, and I have no memories of skinned knees or bruised palms.…
