New Love


I finally got my hands on Issue One of the UK-published Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine. Have you heard the buzz about it already? Well, it's all true! I couldn't stop myself from flipping through the entire issue from cover-to-cover the moment it arrived.

 The fun started right away with a simple, cute and free "Festive Bauble" kit that's attached right there on the cover. How smart is that? It's complete with fabric, felt, ribbon and even a button!

This first issue includes more than 25 inspiring projects including:

The talented Lynne Goldsworthy's striking and beautiful Block of the Month quilt design.

I was totally surprised and tickled to see that she used Daydream, my upcoming fabric line for Moda, in her design. Thank you, Lynne!

There's also a bright and bold stash-busting quilt called Cotton Reels designed by my favorite monkey, Katy Jones, of I'm a Ginger Monkey.

And, i was delighted to read a terrific interview with the industrious and savvy Kathy Mack of Pink Chalk Fabrics ... whose advice for a new quilter is, "Be fearless and enjoy the journey!" What a wonderful message from a wonderful person.

There's lots more from Tula, Jenean, Jeni, Maureen and many others. So be sure to check out LPQ on Pinterest, Facebook or you can download the app from iTunes. Can't wait for Issue 2.

Have a beautiful day!

  4. I subscribed on my iPad through the Newsstand app and am just in LOVE with that big cotton reels quilt. It would be fun to do with a more improv spool too. It's a great little magazine!
