Choose colours with confidence and sew the summer sun with our new issue! Issue 75 is packed with modern quilts for you to sew and it’s out this week. Take a peek inside…
“The key to a tropical vibe is to think outside the box: clashing colours and print mixing,” writes Editor Alice in her introduction to our new issue. We’re throwing ourselves into the tropical trend this month so expect to find sun-drenched patchwork projects and some seriously sunny colour palettes. We’re a bit excited about this month’s project selection for you to sew – including ombré pineapple, Foundation Paper Pieced birds and appliqué botanicals.
Issue 75 is on sale from Wednesday 12th June – order your copy here and read on for our issue preview.
