EDITOR'S LETTER

Welcome

This month I’ve had an absolute adventure immersing myself in so many different crafts. After designing and hand-making invitations for a friend’s wedding, I made place cards to match then dived into a bake-a-thon to cook the three-tier wedding cake. The couple’s two Scottish terriers were gorgeously integrated into the ceremony and, as we decided they needed to get dressed up for the occasion, I got stuck into sewing tartan bow ties for them. You can see all the handmade elements of the wedding at handmade.com.au including step-by-step photos of the marathon cake-making day. All the wedding preparations were interspersed with

putting together this issue, our Patchwork Annual, which is always anticipated with excitement in the Handmade office. With so many patchwork ideas flying through my head, I knew I wanted to make something a little different and try something new. When the AP&Q Persian Carpet fabric range arrived on my desk I was immediately inspired; see the result on page 34.

Editor’s Pick

Sporting a patchwork outfit and mischievous grin , Jacqui Lenaghan’s Patches had me head over heels at first sight!

Floral CHARMS Love buying charm squares but not sure what to do with them? Karen Pior of Sew Well Maide has the perfect answer: a beautiful and simple quilt that you can whip up in no time at all.

Measurements • Finished size: 126cm x 147cm (49½in x 58in)

Materials • 110, 12.7cm (5in) Liberty floral print charm squares • 90cm (1yd) cream quilter’s muslin • 40cm (½yd) brown floral print for the binding • 137cm x 158cm (54in x 62in) rectangle of batting • 1.4m (1½yd) backing fabric • Neutral-coloured cotton thread for machine-piecing • Cream cotton thread for machine-quilting • Rotary cutter, ruler and mat • General sewing supplies

CUTTING From each of the 5in charm squares, cut: – two 2½in x 5in rectangles to yield 220 rectangles. Keep these in matching pairs for the blocks From the cream quilter’s muslin, cut: – 16, 1in strips for the blocks – three 2½in strips for the side borders – two 4½in strips for the top and bottom borders. From the brown floral print, cut: – six 2½in binding strips.

Chain-piecing the blocks along the length of each 1in strip saves time and thread.

Note: It is recommended all fabrics be 100 per cent cotton, pre-washed and well ironed. Requirements are based on fabrics 112cm (44in) wide. The ¼in seam allowance used throughout is included in the cutting measurements. Please read through the instructions before you begin.

BLOCK CONSTRUCTION Lay one 2½in x 5in floral print rectangle right sides together over the 1in cream strip so one long edge of the rectangle is aligned with the raw edge of the strip. Stitch them together. As you near the end of this piece, align a rectangle of a different pair over the cream strip, leaving a ¼in gap between the two rectangles, and continue sewing along the strip. Continue adding one rectangle from each pair to the cream strip in this way until the whole strip is used. You should fit seven or eight rectangles along the strip. Repeat this technique with the remaining two 1in cream strips and one half of each floral rectangle pair.

Place it right sides together along one raw edge of the centre piece and stitch them together. Open it out and press the seam outwards.
