Love Patchwork & Quilting is in my opinion the best quilting magazine around these days. It really has been consistantly good from day one, with an incredibly high standard of projects in each and every issue. Jenny (the editor) is super good at commissioning designer/makers that know what they're doing (plus me). And it's pretty much the only magazine around that manages to have projects in it that really do appeal to both the experienced and the inexperienced. Having been a magazine editor I can tell you that the biggest problem I had was the fact that the publisher was only interested in aiming the projects at beginners. I understood why, but I also knew that there was a proper gap in the market for magazines that catered to beginners and experienced sewers. Which is one of the reasons why Love Patchwork & Quilting really does work.
The lastest issue (out now) includes a pattern for one of my playmats. This is a pretty straight forward pattern, but if you've ever fancied making a playmat or an appliqued soft book for a baby in your life, then this is the issue for you!
The issue also features a beautiful quilt (on the cover) by Karen, as well lots of other super good projects. If you haven't bought the magazine before then why not? Go get it now. And if you have bought it before than I'm pretty sure that you've already bought this one too!
