In Love Patchwork & Quilting Issue 5:
We know that modern quilters want bright, bold projects. You want the latest prints and trends, and projects that are accessible, practical and most of all, beautiful. Well, you've come to the right place – Love Patchwork & Quilting is packed full of must-make projects just for you!
So what's trending in the world of quilts right now? Geometrics, of course! This month features Karen Lewis' gorgeous Pixel Diamonds as our cover star – showing you that with the right colour combos even the most simple piecing can look amazing. We've also got a fantastic stash buster in the form of Susan Standen's fussy cut Precious Pieces cushion (which is perfect for spring cleaning your hoard) plus a clever twist on traditional English Paper Piecing with a super-sweet set of purses by Florence Knapp. Fiona Calvert shows us how to make a classic tumbler quilt (and matching cushion, of course) while Jo Carter has us head over heels with her cute-as-a-button teddy bear softies. What else? Katy Jones has the trend for pixel quilts covered with her monochrome Measure Twice quilt, and Maureen Cracknell shows a modern update on the Bargello quilt. Jeni Baker's talking social media, and how you can make it work for you, plus we go behind the scenes at Art Gallery Fabrics to see where some of our favourite fabrics come from. Then to round it all off, we've got the fifth instalment of Lynne Goldsworthy's Block of the Month – certainly not one to be missed!
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.
