Sewn projects make great gifts – you can hand make something with love while indulging in your favourite passion at the same time. This issue of MM features plenty of projects that’ll make great gifts – from a selection of modern baby quilt patterns, to quick cushions, to whimsical applique, to a sewing machine cover or tablet cosy. Of course, there are plenty of full size quilt patterns which would make the perfect present too. Expand your knowledge with our articles on needle know-how, and modern batik fabrics.
This issue we MEET Karen Lewis, Sedef Imer and Cheryl Brickey. We MAKE some fabulous modern baby quilts, recycle old jeans, and use our favourite techniques including patchwork, HSTs and FPP. We MOTIVATE you to take a look at modern batik fabrics – they’ve come a long way and remind you of the importance of knowing which needle to use for which job (trust us, it makes a difference!).
