jolly holidays

The countdown is on – less than 100 days to go. I love Christmas. There, I said it! Firstly: presents. Look, I know that it isn't all about pressies but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy unwrapping something special! This year I’ve laid down some serious hints as to what's on my wish list. Also… really good telly. Nothing beats curling up under an almost-finished quilt to stitch the binding on with a box set, or a spot of EPP to a nostalgic festive film. And then there's Boxing Day. A day to unpack all those lovely stitchy gifts, and maybe even start work on a new project – between leftover turkey sandwiches! Need I say more? A season of sharing with people you love. So yes,…

bound to perfection

HOW TO USE THE BINDING TOOL This clever tool will help you join the ends of your binding with a diagonal seam, and create expert mitred corners. The flattened point of the tool allows you to line up the two trimmed edges with no overhanging dog ears, and the corner notches mean there's no guesswork on where to stop and start your seams for perfect mitred corners.

JOINING ENDS 1 Attach the binding to your quilt, leaving 8in tails at each end and a 12½in gap between the two ends. 2 Place the short flat edge under the binding on one side (edge A aligned with the quilt edge) and mark on the line. 3 Unfold…

don't be sheepish

Most of the time we play it safe when we choose fabrics. Recently I discovered another avenue for our favourite warm weather fibre - wool pressing mats Because you’re a quilter, I can make a pretty accurate assumption that you love texture. You’re the kind of person who slowly runs your hands over your friend’s new velvet cushions and skims a finger across a pretty ceramic vase in a shop window. You can’t help yourself! To experience something you must touch it. Even though we quilters love the feel of other fabrics and textures, most of the time we play it safe when it comes to the fabrics we choose for a quilt – cotton being the fan favourite. What if I told you that you can have your cake and…
