The latest issue of Fat Quarterly ezine has been released today, and you just might find me in there around page 46!

This issue is all about Modern Traditional – taking a traditional block or idea and modernising it.

I submitted my Giant Bear Paw Block design, which I have made up into a cushion for a good friend.

I had fun making this cushion from leftover Flora charm squares, and quilting the front and the back in a square grid pattern.

I developed this giant block for a quilt I’ll will be teaching on Friday mornings, starting 17th May.
