Beautiful fabrics and quilts are meant to be shown off and enjoyed. Agree? We certainly do, and in this issue, we encourage you to use your quilts, with ways to get them out of your cupboards, on display and in rotation. And if you’ve got special fabric that you can’t quite bring yourself to cut up into a quilt yet, we continue the theme and MOTIVATE you to use that precious fabric!

We MEET two talented quilters, Jo Avery and Velda Roy, and showcase an entire gallery of teeny tiny micro mini quilts! And we MAKE rainbows as we cheer on our Creative Director (and self-confessed rainbow addict) Kristy Lea who makes her fabric debut with her new Create line, featured in the Rainbow Bright quilt pattern, just one of the ten beautiful patterns featured in Issue 35. Be inspired by our incredible line up of international quilters and makers to prise that precious coveted fabric out of your stash and under your machine, pronto!
