Sew tropical vibes with issue 75

Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine issue 75

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.
