In Love Patchwork & Quilting Issue 8
Are you ready to swing into Spring? This issue is bursting at the seams with bright, fresh projects that will get you in the mood for some sunny stitching. Our cover star this month is the gorgeous Cheerio quilt by Camille Roskelley, stitched up in her very own fabrics, no less! Plus it’s accompanied by a pattern for one of her signature mini-quilts, so you can make it big or small. Issue 8 also features Jo Carter’s patchwork pooches – two sausage dogs that are right up there on our must-make list already. Then there’s the super-sweet ice cream quilt by Reene Witchard (perfect for picnics in the park), and Katy Jones’ modern take on the classic Irish chain featuring Frances Newcombe’s amazing Safari Moon collection.
Queen of the handmade handbag Lisa Lam shares an easy-peasy purse project – and we give it a patchwork twist, of course! And Judith Dahmen’s preparing to sew on-the-go with her stylish Liberty set (including puch and needle book) with the ultimate scrap-buster project. Then there’s the regulars you’ve come to know and love – Lynne Goldsworthy is back with a new block of the month and we're sussing out how to organise a sewing space that works for you with Jeni Baker. We'll take you behind-the-scenes with blogger and owner of Sew and Quilt, Jessie Fincham and talk about turning your crafty hobby into a business with author Torie Jayne. On top of all that we've lined up all of the hottest fabrics and stitching notions to brighten up your life!
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.
