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.
