Spring is here and it’s time to get bright and breezy with your makes. Packed with bold and beautiful projects, this month’s Popular patchwork is all you need to brighten up your home. Our designers this month include Kerry Foster with her coverstar quilt, Scallops, a modern quilt which uses an overlapping design with appliqued details. Carolyn Forster has created the gorgeous Courthouse steps, a scrap-busting quilt in a beautiful array of blues and turquoise shades and new to Popular Patchwork, designer Angela Lackey brings us the stunning Compass star cushion. Debbie Von Grabler Crozier will help you keep your notes in style with her fabulous Boho-message board and check out Helen Butchers Square Dance Tote for your new season bag.

Away from the patterns, we discover how a Queen of Bargello, Karin Hellaby kickstarted her career after a chance visit to a quilting exhibition and textile artist Sheila Dalgleish shares the inspiration behind her award-winning quilts. And finally, with the Royal wedding on the horizon, we go behind the scenes of TheRoyal School of Needlework and send Popular Patchworks own, Liz Betts to sample one of their highly acclaimed workshops.

Don’t miss all this and more in your May issue of Popular Patchwork.
