The new issue of Popular Patchwork is in the shops from Friday 7th March
You can preview the contents pages from the new issue of Popular Patchwork here, Popular Patchwork April 2014.
Our cover project this month is Mandy Munroe's effective yet easy Monaluna Integrated Squares quilt. This is a brilliant project for beginners, but we think it's so stylish that experienced quilters will love it too. Inside there are six more quilt projects, including a special two for one in Janet Goddard's Shirt Quilt Duo, Lonni Rossi and Makower's dramatic Enchantment at Midnight and the wonderfully tactile Woolie's World by Karin Hellaby. If you've got access to a Sizzix machine, try Angela Southey's Tula Pink Quick Quilt, and if not, check out this month's newsletter for a chance to win one of the latest models. We've got a folk art special coming up soon, so there's a taste of things to come in Mending Fences by Wendy Sheppard. That's not all, April also brings a beautiful Roll-up Backgammon Board by Daniel Rouse, a pretty Pinwheels mini quilt by Katharine Guerrier and Sarah Sparke's fun Dog Draft Excluder!
Within our features pages, learn about fabric dyeing with Gillian Cooper in Colour Onto Cloth, visit Duxford Autumn Quilt Show with Davina Thomas, and check out the 12 by 12 Exhibition at Midsomer Quilting with Anne Williams.
In this month's Scrap Attack, Stuart Hillard shows us how to make simple star and chain star variation blocks.
