Popular Patchwork

I can’t believe it, I got the cover this month as well!!!!! The editor obviously loved the fabrics as much as I did. They are designed by Jennifer Moore for Monaluna based in California and all GOTS (certified organic) cotton too!

This quilt is really easy, I designed it to show off big chunks of the fun prints but it would also look great in high contrast solids and I’ve made a really soft utilitarian version in shirtings. If you need a top in a day, this might be worth a go.


April issue is out today in the UK  🙂

    Echo all above! I am not surprised, either!! That quilt, though easy, is so interesting to look at, great for showing off all the great fabrics that are coming in for Spring and, as you have said, very versatile!!!! Well done!!!!! Hugs…………
