Our projects this issue use all our favourite shapes, and pretty much all our favourite colours too. A few of them are derived from very elementary quilt blocks – nine patch, flying geese and log cabins – but given a variation that will extend your skills. If the projects in this issue don’t have you itching to sew, then it may be time to check your sewjo for a pulse – don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. Fortunately, we have a host of remedies for quilter’s block, as recommended by you, our loyal readers. In Issue 15 we MEET THE Denyse Schmidt who needs no introduction, we MAKE stars, circles and more, and we MOTIVATE you to find your sewjo. Plus so much more...
