Popular Patchwork August 2012It's not exactly warm and sunny outside, but the new issue of Popular Patchwork will brighten up your day, with a lovely collection of sunny projects for you this month.
 
Our cover project for August is Citrus Stars by Chris Franses, a wonderfully juicy throw, made to make your mouth water! Stephanie Pettengell brings the sunshine indoors with her Sunflower quilt, and Greta Fitchett shows us how to create a beautiful Summer Landscape. August also brings two great car themed projects to make for children, a clever car carry bag by Regan Purcell, and a fantastic Round the Block play mat by Ruth Lazarus. There's also a selection of great gift projects, a gorgeous Notebook case by Katharine Guerrier, Little Owl Beanie by Sadie Yeomans and an on trend Keep Calm wall hanging by Esther Anderson.
 
The second part of our Row by Row Sampler Quilt by Davina Thomas is also featured in this issue. Don't forget to share your progress each month here on the website, we love to see how you're getting on.
 
In our features section, we report back from Chilford and the International Quilt Festival of Ireland. You can also take a sneak preview of Festival of Quilts and catch up with the Olympics and see some of the beautiful Gift of Quilts that will be presented to all the national teams this summer. For those of you busy zapping UFOs, join Brenda Dean in her marathon UFO session, she recently finished a 36 year old quilt!
