On Newsstands: Love, From the U.K.

If you are in the United States, this issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting is still in stores…and it just might be a favorite of mine! I want to tell you about it.
If you are not familiar with this title, you simply must check it out. I don’t subscribe to quilt magazines, usually just buying the issues that I really like. This one is different. I do subscribe, and I get excited every month it comes.
I am in love with this quilt by Camille Roskelly, also shown on the cover, and the pattern includes a mini version, too. It is pretty simple, but it just grabs me!
Besides the quilting and sewing projects, LP&Q is a fun read for its newsy pages, too.
I love the section on new fabrics coming to the market….but I get upset when they aren’t available in the United States (I’m talking to you, Dashwood Studio!)
And, I have never seen this in another magazine: lots of info on websites to visit, products that are new and fun and trends coming along. So fun, colorful and fresh!
Guess what? I am now really excited about a new quilting magazine coming out of the UK:
Remember when  I told you about meeting Katy Jones at Camp Stitchalot? Well, she is the editor of a new magazine, Quilt Now! the first issue is coming out in July (that’s the first cover, above). I was pretty bummed when it looked like the hard copy wouldn’t be available here (I am not a fan of digital publication)…..But, I have since learned that Pink Castle Fabrics is stocking it! Check out the page about it Here.
When it comes to sewing eye candy, the UK magazines are really worth a look! I love the fresh and light colors, and kind of get a kick out of the some of the quirky expressions they use.
Happy Reading,

  1. When it comes to almost any magazine, ones from the UK are definitely worth checking out. My husband gets DP (Digital Photographer) which is published in the UK.

    I totally agree about UK magazines. My favorite the knitting magazine (the only crafting magazine that I try to buy every single issue) is a small one from the UK.

I love comments! thanks for stopping by.
