So here is it, the Big Spring Clean cover booklet that we have designed for Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine with eight new retro themed designs. It goes on sale in UK shops today and hits USA in around 4-6 weeks.
It includes a step by step tutorial for the radio block. This includes using templates to cut more accurate pieces, fussy cutting and adding appliqué details.
This is Penny's design, an atomic sparkle!
The soap bubbles was a joint design, started by Penny and finished and sewn up by me.
Shine is one of my favourites, and I used the minimum number of separate sections for the text to simplify the construction.
Penny picked the most perfect fabrics for this brush, the bristles have got so much movement!
Penny's Wash and Go block shows how effective fussy cuts can be in foundation paper pieced blocks. The text print is the first piece to be added in that section which makes construction much easier
This retro light was by me- I think it has the wrong name on. Its a quick straightforward design to sew! It is such a happy collection of blocks and we both love the art work and layout from the Love Patchwork and Quilting team- thank you to Jen and Alice and all others involved. You can find Love Patchwork and Quilting issue 20 in the UK in WHSmiths, Supermarkets and large newsagents.
