Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, Issue 8

Hi guys! I just had to stop by today and tell you all about my feature in this month's Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine! I will try to keep the exclamation points to a minimum, but it's just so exciting!!! >.<


One of the lovely editors; Alice, contacted me a couple of months ago and asked if I would be happy to contribute a little interview about me, my quilting projects, my shop, how I got started - that sort of thing. As well as provide some images to use alongside the article.

Little did I know it was going to be a three page spread!! Eeek! I'm so honoured to be part of the magazine, it really is a great publication aimed at quilter's like us ;-) and it does really well to promote the British quilting scene. Plus, this issue is extra amazing because one of my favourite quilter's; Camille has designed the fabulous 'Cheerio' quilt as featured on the front cover. Wouldn't it make a great little baby quilt? That's what I'm planning - to gift of course! Oh, and there's a mini version too, so you know I had to make that straight away!


This little mini was so fun to make, and I got to cut into the brand new April Showers collection we just got in! Though it's a mix of general Sew and Quilt shop fabrics - my favourite! I also did an orange peel quilting design, which I've not tried before. Using the Pumpkin Seed border quilting stencil.

Another little feature I had is in a brand new bookazine by the LP&Q magazine, called 'Pro Guide To Quilting'. They asked for some of my Scrappy Trips and Granny Squared quilts. 


Issue 8 of Love Patchwork & Quilting and Pro Guide To Quilting is on UK newstands now, so I hope you can get a copy. For my international readers, you can find LP&Q magazine in local quilt shops and book shops next month I think, and there is an offer running at the moment to buy 3 issues for $10 here. Great deal! You can get a digital version for your iPad too. Hope that helps! xo

  1. I already saw that and was so disappointed they don't sell this mag in my country (The Netherlands). But I am lucky, I found someone who bought it for me and will bring it over from the UK for me, can't wait!
