A great selection of projects for you this month. I just love the No Drama Llama Cushion designed by Debbie von Grabler-Crozier. Isn’t he wonderful? What better way to welcome summer dining than with the Summer Runner? The Ladder Stitch Quilt is a good project for practising an accurate seam allowance, while the Mystery Strip Sampler is great for using pre-cut strips. The Summer Kaleidoscope Quilt is Julie Alderson’s summer project inspired by the Scottish island where she lives. How Does Your Garden Grow? combines several techniques to make a cosy lap quilt. Stuart’s block in Stashbusting is an offset Log Cabin style block.

Joanna O’Neill met Tracey Pereira recently and she tells us about Tracey’s longarm quilting in Meet a Quilter and we find out more about Claire Wilcox, Senior Curator of fashion at the V&A and her memoir to textiles in Patch Work.

It’s a really packed issue for you this month. Our cover quilt is the wonderfully contemporary Modern Throw quilt designed by Anja Townrow, a quilt she designed during lockdown. The Michiko Quilt features a quintessentially Oriental fabric collection from Makower. If you were inspired by her article on Inktense pencils in the Winter 2020 issue, Joanna O’Neill brings us her Baltimore by Number quilt. From America, we have the Traveller’s Rest Quilt which maker, Kristen Clay, has beautifully hand quilted. A bit more improv piecing from Katharine Guerrier with her All Squared Up wall hanging, while you can practise your curved piecing with the Primavera Runner. The Half Hexie Chase quilt combines simple piecing with a little bit of appliqué and Stuart’s Stashbusting block this month celebrates neutral fabrics.

Quilters love to make quilts to mark special birthdays and celebrations, both individually and as group exercises and Mandy Munroe tells us about the quilts her Jo Blox quilt group made for each other in Bubbles and Fizz. Meanwhile if you are interested in using technology in your quilt making, Joanna O’Neill takes a look at using various programmes and apps in Quilt Design goes Digital.

As ever we have a packed issue for you this month. We seem to have gone a little pineapple crazy; did you know the pineapple was a sign of opulence in Victorian times? Katie’s Cats Quilt is such a fun bright quilt and while not a true pineapple block pattern, the overall effect is similar. While the Pineapple Pincushions are a great introduction to foundation piecing on a small scale, and they use up some of those small scraps we keep. The Iris Table Topper is Julie Alderson’s summer project for us inspired by the irises at the edge of the beaches on her Scottish island home. The Pamper Quilt features a stylish fabric collection from Makower while Chris Franses’ Curved Pinwheels Quilt is strip roll friendly. Stuart’s block this month in Stashbusting is perfect for spring!

Whilst it may be some time before we can attend quilt shows, some exhibitions are being held virtually and one such event was for the Quiltmakers of Gee’s Bend exhibition which was due to be held in London. Deborah Nash listened in on a virtual tour for us. We meet Linda Halpin in our Meet a Quilter series of articles and Kenzo Nakamura further explores design in his Geometric Quilt Experiment.
