You can start the New Year in style with Chris Hammacott's "Resolutions Wallhanging" this month. This is a handy fabric message board, perfect for keeping all next year's quilting projects on track, with some helpful words of encouragement for when things get tough! Gillian's Mystery Quilt is brought to a colourful conclusion, and we've got a lovely stylish bag from Ruth Singer. We've got a quilt for a toddler, "M is for Maisy", and a quilt for a dog, "Puppy Love". There's still room for a quilt for ourselves though, "Crazy Stars" features a complex looking design made from easy foundation piecing, a great lap quilt for winter.
There are two new series starting this month. Our "Square Dance" mini quilts will bring you a new technique to try out on a 10 inch square each month in 2010. Davina Thomas has designed a "Stay at Home" round robin quilt with a twist: it never has to leave home as you build it up month by month. This issue includes photos of some finished quilts, so you can plan ahead, and see where your quilt might be heading.
Our features section includes a variety of interesting new articles. Chris Hammacott visits Mission Hall Quilts in Northern Ireland to see how quilts can help in divided communities, while Anita Peach investigates patchwork in Sydney, Australia. There's a great story behind "The Claridges Quilt", read all about it in this issue and then you could visit the Quilt Museum in 2010 to see the quilt itself. Elisabeth Fuchs introduces us to the world of the fictional quilting detective, Benni Harper, and Pat Stone helps us to get the most out of our sewing machines in "A Girls Best Friend", this month looking at pintucks.
