Issue 47 of Today’s Quilter is on sale now and it’s filled with gorgeous spring quilting patterns and inspiration. Here’s what’s in store…

Master curved piecing with Anna Marie Galvin’s kaleidoscopic Drunkard’s Path blocks and then delve into your vintage textiles to create Carolyn Forster’s heirloom quilt. Victoria Carrington kicks off her new Seasonal Cushion Series with an adorable spring scene featuring an abundance of appliqué bluebells and a sweet bunny for you to kick back and stitch at your leisure – pure bliss!

Plus, Sally Ablett has a timeless two-block design for you to sew up in Liberty’s stunning new fabric range, The Hesketh House Collection, and Karen Lewis is putting a new spin on the classic Geese in the Pond block for a speedy yet satisfying weekend sew.

Today's Quilter 47 Getting Creative with Colour

Get creative with colour…

Some of you may have already spotted that we are giving you not one, but two gifts with issue 47 of Today’s Quilter! The first is a handy colour wheel (it’s the perfect size for popping into your bag next time you go fabric shopping), and the second a beautiful 28-page project book bursting with colour theory, inspiration and patterns to sew. Use your colour wheel to see how colours look together based on where they sit on the wheel in relationship to each other. Swot up on different palettes, discover what rules they follow, and what moods they convey in the viewer. Then turn to your book for more in-depth colour features and to stitch Vendulka Battais’ mesmerising Cathedral Windows quilt and cushions set.
