Pretty Patches - August, 2017

August, 2017

Summer holiday season is here and, inbetween the beach trips and barbecues, this is the perfect time to capture inspirational images and ideas for your next creative project. French textile artist Martine Apaolaza uses photographs taken on her travels to create the templates for her charming appliqué works and the results, as you can see, are enchanting. So whether you scribble in a sketchpad or shoot snaps on your cameraphone, let your summer adventures spark your imagination!

Inside this issue

We’ve embraced the season’s tropical trend in this issue of Pretty

Patches, with a pair of bright quilted cushions from Debbie von Grabler- Crozier that will bring an instant island vibe to your living space, plus a range of fun makes in fresh fabrics, including Beth Studley’s easy-sew doorstops, Judith Hollies’ travel-themed Around the World quilt, and Ayda Algin’s super-cute toy storage basket. What’s wonderful about these projects is how versatile they are – so if the tropical look isn’t for you, try making Debbie’s cushions in one of the subtle fl oral prints from our fabric collection pages, or stitch Judith’s quilt in rich berry shades ready for autumn.
We love to see how you’ve interpreted our projects so do keep sharing images on our social media channels, and don’t forget you can now find full-size downloadable templates for your makes on the Pretty Patches website.
