Start the New Year in style with a range of exciting projects and Popular Patchwork.Our cover project this month features one of the oldest, yet most on trend British fabrics, Harris Tweed. Get warm and cosy with Chris Hammacott's great Tweed cushion, and learn more about the history behind this versatile fabric in our features pages in Chris' investigative article. Mandy Munroe has designed a lovely Stepping Stones quilt, inspired by Edinburgh pavements, and Sadie Yeomans has bought us a girly wall hanging in "Thoroughly Modern Mille", a redwork project that you're sure to love. Elsewhere we have an Art Deco Tissue Box cover, a fun backpack and pencil case for children, and chenille hot water bottle covers to keep you toasty. Take a look at the contents page to find out more.
In our features section, we take a look at Quilting in Germany with Elisabeth Fuschs, Gillian tells us about Mariner's Compass quilt blocks and you can read all about a special Quilt Competition for children in aid of Canine Partners. Chris Hammacott tells us all about Harris Tweed, we visit the brilliant American Museum in Bath and take a look at the work and 40th anniversary of Search Press, a wonderful UK craft book publisher.
