freshly picked

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some sunshine! I’m not talking about jetting off to faraway shores (although that would be very lovely), I'm talking about getting some vitamin D – that’s D for design – from closer and more reliable sources… Like starting with a rummage through my technicolour fabric stash (thanks for the reminder, Suzy Williams, page 32), and seeking out lots of sunny designs for my sewing machine. Feeling the same? Then you've come to the right place! We’ve got rainbows makes, floral blocks, tropical piecing, hypnotic circles, FPP hearts and more to bring colour and cheer to our sewing tables. After all, spring is just around the corner. Join us online... we love to share! LovePatchworkandQuilting LoveQuiltingMag LoveQuiltingMag www.lovepatchworkandquilting.com…

Set aside some sewing time, grab your stash of solids and get ready to surround yourself with the shades of the rainbow (and some snuggly quilts, too). Start small with Sarah Ashford's zippy case and storage baskets, or conquer curves with Rebecca Reid's delightful double-sided cushion. Mini HST houses offer a fun, fast finish, while vibrant appliqué provides the finishing touch to your next favourite tote bag.

Don’t forget to share your colour-crushing rainbow makes with us on social media using…

back to basics

Even if you own a hand-me-down sewing machine and use your kitchen table as a studio, I'm going to guess that you love to splurge on pretty fabric Last month we made a lot of sewing plans from the safety of our cosy quilt pile. This month I’m going to lay before you a challenge, should you choose to accept it – crawl out from under your quilts and get back to the making! Okay, so that came out a little intense. Let’s not take it so far. How about this: crawl out from under your quilts and remember why you fell in love with quilting in the first place – the fabric! Beautiful, textured, dyed and printed FABRIC! Before any of us ever learned to quilt, we ran our hand…
