quilt ready

I recently sewed the final stitches in my #100Blocks sampler and it feels like an enoromous accomplisment – just two years in the making! The trouble is, I'm so terrified of ruining the whole thing with my mediocre machine quilting skills that it's destined to sit neatly folded on my WIP shelf for the forseeable future.

With this in mind, we've team up with super-star quilter Karlee Porter to create a set of modern stencils. They take the guesswork out of design-work and hopefully give you the tools you need to crack on with…

We're setting you up with seven striking geometric quilting stencils to help stitch intricate patterns with ease. And the good news is that they're super easy to use!

So, how do you choose the perfect colour palette? Well, it really comes down to personal preference. You may or may not have signature colours that you like to use. You might gravitate towards certain hues or shades in your quilts. Or, maybe you love every colour under the sun and…
