sorbet shades

The trend for pretty pastels is one of my favourites: powder pink, cool mint, soft lemon and lavender are all making their way into quilt colour schemes and I love it! Sorbet shades and geometric piecing are the perfect pairing – contrast graphic lines and subtle colours for a fresh, modern feel. Lou's cover quilt this month is a masterclass in curating colour and gives us a final shot of summery colour before we hunker down for darker months rolling in. As always, the mag features show-stopping quilt designs with super simple construction, classic units with time-saving tricks and new techniques to take you outside your comfort zone. All of which are ready and waiting for you to give them your own twist! Join us online... we love to share! LovePatchworkandQuilting LoveQuiltingMag LoveQuiltingMag www.lovepatchworkandquilting.com…

smooth curves

USING YOUR TEMPLATES 1 Cut two shapes from Template A, and one shape from Template B. If making many blocks, it's easiest to cut 6½in wide strips first, and then subcut your template pieces, fitting them together to avoid fabric wastage (Figs 1 and 2). If you struggle with curves you may want to cut the Template A pieces from 7in squares, so there's an extra ½in beyond the straight edges. You can trim these down after sewing. 2 Use the templates as a guide to mark the dots on your fabric pieces. Take one piece each from Templates A and B and with right sides together and the A background piece on top, pin together at the dot (Fig 3). 3 Pin at either end, then ease along the curve and pin…

in good company

Yesterday, I spent 12 whole hours cooped up in my sewing room without speaking to a single soul. I listened to a good podcast, sang at the top of my lungs and stayed in my pyjamas all day… what more could an introvert want?! But while it’s lovely to quilt from the comfort and seclusion of my own home, even I can admit that a little bit of human interaction is needed every now and then. What if we can use Instagram to create something together, share tips and ideas while working towards one common goal? Introducing the quiltalong! Last month we chatted about the bustling community of quilters on Instagram. We discussed the connection social media enables, how to take a great shot, and I even spilt the beans on my…
