Our 50th issue hits the shops today, and we couldn’t let our birthday pass without throwing a bit of a party to celebrate, so we’re planning a sewalong over on Instagram. Come and join us… it’s going to be so much fun!Celebrating 50 issues is really exciting for us, so we couldn’t let the milestone issue without a very special gift. We’ve teamed up with the lovely folk at Art Gallery Fabrics to bring you our 32 Modern Quilt Blocks book. It contains a scrumptious collection of quilt block designs, with full instructions for how to piece each one. We’ll be releasing a series of bonus block designs here on the blog too (check in here every Monday for a new design).
You can get your hands on the book when issue 50 goes on sale tomorrow, when we’ll also be launching the #lpq32blocksSAL over on our @lovequiltingmag instagram. We’ve asked some of our favourite designers to join in the fun and they’ll be sharing their take on our quilt blocks on instagram in the days and weeks to come.
After all, one of the best things about being a quilter is the wonderful sewing community who we get to share our love of fabric with every day. So reach for your sewing kit (and your camera!) and sew along with us.
