Issue 37 is out!

Date: 15th June 2017 | Category: News

Have you planned out your summer projects yet? I’m loving the tropical prints on the market right now, which are just perfect for holiday makes, but whether you fancy a fun project with a seaside theme, a pretty floral quilt, or a little something to brighten up the garden, it’s time to kick off your flip-flops, put down that holiday packing list and enjoy the inspiration in this issue of Pretty Patches!

Nautical fabrics and accessories are everywhere at this time of year, but we’ve given the traditional concept a modern spin with Debbie Shore’s bright beach hut tablet cover, Tone Finnanger’s cute whales in her own Tilda prints, and Pam & Nicky Lintott’s contemporary Boardwalk quilt, which is ideal for using up vivid blues and yellows in your stash – or a good excuse to invest in a new jelly roll! There are some great ideas for summer travel too, including Debbie von Grabler-Crozier’s clever carry-on bag, which converts into a rucksack, and Jennifer Heynen’s ice cream keyring bag, designed to keep your headphones safe on days out and beach trips. With the Festival of Quilts just around the corner, we also meet two of the 2017 gallery artists in this issue – award-winning US quilter Jean Wells, whose colourful quilts have earned international acclaim, and Borneo-based Anne Maundrell, who aims to capture the sights of her island home in stitched form before deforestation changes it forever. The depth and detail of her work is truly breathtaking. Enjoy the issue in paper format and downloaded to your digital device.
