The Royal Wedding is nearly upon us, so we're in a romantic and patriotic mood this month! Make a Red Rose flag cushion with Sally Ablett, a gorgeous Love Hearts quilt with Hilary Gooding and Makower, Regan Purcell's lovely Liberty cushion, or Sadie Yeoman's heirloom ring pillow to bring some wedding joy to your home. We've also got a Wedding Cake in Cake of the Month, a pretty stitchery project by Sadie in Top Hat and Tails, and a lovely pieced wedding quilt, Spring Stars by Sarah Williamson.
Our features section continues the matrimonial theme, with this month's Building Blocks feature, Gillian is looking at the Steps to the Altar block. There's also a preview of Delia Salter and Lynne Seaman's new exhibition, "The Music in my Mind".
