In Love Patchwork & Quilting Issue 2:Christmas has come early this issue with Allison Harris' stunning snowball quilt on our cover – red and teal is our new festive combo fave for sure. Holly DeGroot's star cushion is the perfect modern twist on the traditional spirit of the season (although it's versatile enough to be used all year). We've stitchy tips and tricks a-plenty – give freehand appliqué a bash with Brioni Greenberg's petals quilt. Warning: this technique is properly addictive. Show off your favourite prints and make Manda McGrory's infinity scarf. Wear it outside and everyone will want one, so get your stash prepped (we're sure you'll find some new must-haves within these pages). There's still time for some last-minute Christmas gifting too. Try our stash-busting fabric boxes from Emma Castle, or whip up Jeni Baker's coin purse. What's that? You want cute? How does Jo Carter's adorable fawn softie sound? There's more: forget on-trend, we've got an eye-popping lime quilt that's so fashion forward it hurts, there's a spot of boho-style psychedelia, accessories galore and loads more to inspire you.
So pop Love P&Q next to your sewing machine for top tips while you stitch, and keep us to hand for instant ideas. Whatever you're doing, we're always with you, sharing your passion for fabric and the wonderful world of modern quilting.
