This month’s projects include machine pieced quilts, English Paper Piecing and some simple appliqué. We’re starting a new Mystery Quilt from Stuart Hillard in this issue. We hope you join in with this project which will run over the next few months. I’ve seen the finished quilt and it is rather awesome! I designed my Watercolour Spirals quilt around using a Layer Cake, but you can also make it from a Jelly Roll. Naomi Clarke has another EPP project for you in Scandinavian Summer, featuring fabrics from Lewis & Irene. The Gibraltar Quilt is a relatively easy make, but can add a little bit of extra skill by using directional prints. If modern retro is your thing, then you’ll love the Retro Floral Quilt. And finally we welcome back Stuart Hillard’s Stashbusting. Look out for the team’s block in each issue too! I visited the National Quilt Championships at Sandown Racecourse for the first time as a visitor and what a lovely day out it was. Wonderful quilts, lots of traders to tempt you and beautiful views from the grandstand while you have your lunch. We also take a look at the recent exhibition by Anglia Textile Works. Helen has been out and about again visiting the 1718 Coverlet whilst it was on display at the American Museum in Bath and also managed to see Midsomer Quilting’s new premises in Let’s Go Shopping. Marijke van Welzen tells us about her First and Last quilts and we meet Dulwich Quilters in Introducing.
