fun with fabric!

How does fabric make you feel? When I first started sewing, I would fixate on whole collections and plan designs with a single range in mind – the simplicity of an off-the-shelf bundle with the daunting work of choosing prints and colour to match was so alluring. Now I’ve got a bit more confidence, I’m more inclined to pick out a fat quarter here and there to mix and match from different designers and build my own bundles! I’m also much more inclined to throw in a selection of solids (an influence for which I entirely blame LP&Q!). Whether you’re treating yourself to a little fabric shopping or delving straight into your stash, we have a selection of projects to really embrace having fun with your fabric. Happy quilting!

Once cool, use a sharp pair of scissors to cut out your shape along the drawn line (Fig C). Repeat steps 1–3 to…

history in the making

The more I learn about the history of sewing, the more I fall in love with the craft. Today, I want to talk about the sewing machine, and the way it changed quilting (and everything else) forever. If you take a look at the full timeline of quilting, there is a stark difference between the years before the invention of the sewing machine and after If you take a look at the full timeline of quilting, there is a stark difference between the years before the invention and mass sales of the domestic sewing machine, and the years after. These days, teens are prolific at texting, but at one point, the primary responsibility of growing girls was to learn to hand sew, so they could produce all of the family’s clothing, quilts,…
