Popular Patchwork August 2013On our cover this month, Kerry Wilkinson captures the season to perfection in a pastel pieced and appliquéd beauty, Waiting Waxwings. There are four other great quilts in this issue. Summertime, a garden themed quilt from Sigrid Ferguson, Tumbling Logs by Jo Avery, a pre-cut quick make, Candy Kisses by Sara Jaskiewicz and Sadie Yeomans, and Summer Burst by Debbie Von Grabler-Crozier. Stuart Hillard shares part two of his applique masterclass, and we look at pieced blocks in Sue Cook's second BOM installment of her folded sampler quilt. We also have a great extract from Tula Pink's new book, City Sampler, which encourages you to develop your own blocks and Bridget Kenningham makes the most of her Sizzix with her upcycled Dino Party laundry bag
 
In this month's features section, we preview Alsace with Contemporary Expressions, meet Tula Pink and join Ineke Berlyn in her Creative Space.  Brenda Dean and Janet Richardson teach us all about borders in Hints and Tips and Stuart Hillard looks at the lovely Lights of the City block in Scrap Attack.
