There’s something magical about the simplicity of one block quilts. The design repetition makes it the perfect way to showcase favourite fabrics and shapes. Of course, this doesn’t mean the quilts need to be boring or symmetrical – employ modern techniques like changing the scale, gradation of colour or rotating blocks to create a secondary design. We’ve got lots of great patterns celebrating one block quilts this issue, and a feature on the subject to help you better design your one block wonders.

We also MEET Rachaeldaisy, Cath Hall of Wombat Quilts and Carl Hentsch, and are inspired by their love of colour and design and passion for the craft. We MOTIVATE you to share your quilts with the world with our gallery showcase of Australian quilts featured at QuiltCon, and include a wrap on the greatest event on the modern quilting calendar. We MAKE quilts featuring rainbows, solids and texture.
