Today's Quilter magazine issue 30 cover large

‘Tis the season to get quilting, tra la la la la…” We’ve packed our brand new issue with quilts filled with comfort and cheer to cosy up with in the run up to Christmas…

Make Carolyn Forster’s colourful cover quilt (we were in a seasonal mood when we thought of featuring it in our December issue as it stars the festive-sounding Turkey Tracks  block!). Of course it’s just one of a set of gorgeous quilts we’ve got lined up for you to have fun with (Bargello brights anyone?) and why not try turned-edge appliqué with our Essential Guide or discover the secrets of India’s quilting heritage? Plus don’t miss part two our Vintage Home block of the month and we’ve got a very special supplement for you this month…

Get your copy today in our online store (or download your issue 30 quilters’ templates here). Here are a few of our issue highlights to look out for:
