Play with patterns! Our gifts for you this month

Love Patchwork & Quilting issue 48 patterns

Because you deserve as many projects as we can physically give you, we’re bursting out of our pages to bring two extra designs to sew this month – an FPP quilt and a stylish bag!

Boost your sewing library with issue 68’s gift of not one, but two pattern envelopes, complete with all the full-size templates you need to get making.

Kick-start your creativity and learn essential bag-making skills with Sara Lawson’s Half-square Triangle handbag, beautifully pieced in Art Gallery Fabrics by Debbie von Grabler-Crozier.

Once that’s in the bag (pardon the pun!), stretch your stitching skills with Lynne Goldsworthy’s Foundation Paper Pieced quilt. It features a striking starburst design made up from super-sized blocks that come together quickly for beginner-friendly FPP, or a satisfyingly speedy sew for experienced quilters.

When you’re done, file your patterns away in their coordinating printed envelopes ready to revisit another day, or pass onto a fellow quilter and share the love!

Oh, and don’t forget to show us your projects on social media too using #lovequiltingmag – we always love to see what you’ve been making.
