Sweet Sixteen...

Issue Sixteen of Love Patchwork & Quilting is out now, and I am fortunately enough to have contributed a quilt to this issue.

I realise I am rather good at telling you that I am working on the secret stuff, but when it comes round to showing you what I was up to, I am rather reserved.

This was the quilt that challenged me throughout September and early October; I came up with the pattern full of confidence, but the fabric selection had me pulling my hair out, gave me many sleepless nights and a good measure of angst.

However being far out of my comfort zone of aquas, pinks and low volume, has probably done me some good!


As always I love the styling that goes along with these magazine commissions, and you just have to imagine my beaming smile to see how this quilt looked on the page.


If you haven't got your hands on a copy yet, why not?!  There a bunch of beautiful projects in there as always, and I am honoured to share space with so many talented quilters.
