Popular Patchwork October 2013We're looking at shades of Autumn this month with a gorgeous selection of projects featuring seasonal colour schemes and fabrics. Our cover project for October is Vintage Chintz, by Stuart Hillard and features a lovely reproduction panel from The Quilters  Guild. If you love this style of quilt but would like a little more of a creative challenge, have a look at Autumn Glory by Debbie von
Grabler-Crozier, which includes a painted centre block.
 
Ruth Lazarus brings you a clever bag design with interchangeable feature panels in A Bag For All Seasons, while Regan Purcell shows you how to incorporate texture with her Chenille Quilt. There's also a wonderful Scrap Triangles Quilt by Katharine Guerrier.
 
Angela Southey uses her Sizzix to create a Fireworks wall hanging. This wall hanging was much admired on our stand at Festival of Quilts, why not make your own?
 
Last but certainly not least, we have a new sampler quilt starting in this issue, Autumn Stars by Chris Franses and of course the next installment of our Folded Sampler BOM from Sue Cook.
 
In this month's features section, join Phillipa Naylor in her Creative Space, and read more about the competition quilts at Quilts UK 2013.  We take a look at this year's Christmas fabric ranges in Christmas Fabric Preview and  chat with Lynette Anderson in Q&A. Brenda Dean and Janet Richardson tell us about mitred borders in Hints and Tips and Stuart Hillard looks at string-pieced Lemoyne star blocks in Scrap Attack.
