NEW! Vintage Sweethearts BOM

Block of the Month - Ada - from issue 14 of Love Patchwork & Quilting - main

Discover Lynne Goldsworthy’s gorgeous new BOM for Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine!

Every month over the next year, starting with issue 14 (on sale now!), we’ll bring you two NEW BOM block designs by Lynne using the stylishly retro fabric collection Mimosa by Another Point of View for Windham Fabrics. Mimosa’s modern take on ditsy floral prints combined with Lynne’s intricate piecing had us dreaming of the pretty tea dresses of days gone by and so the Vintage Sweethearts were born!

Block of the Month - Ada - from issue 14 of Love Patchwork & Quilting

Our first Vintage Sweetheart, starring in issue 14, is Enchanting Ada. She looks super crisp and fresh dressed in Mimosa Leaves, in Aqua. But we think her alternative outfit in fiery Coral Blossoms is what she’d choose for a special night out! If you fancy having a go mixing up the fabric placement again in Lynne’s block design, Lynne has suggested a couple more alternatives in the magazine, as well as including two ‘blank’ blocks for you to become your own dress, ahem, block designer! Download more blank templates right here.

To make the block itself, the Foundation Paper Piecing template for this design (and the templates for everything else in issue 14!) can be downloaded here!
