We've got a lovely bright cover project this month, "Stars in the Cabin" is a vivid design mixing stars and logs by Janet Goddard. The second gorgeous Landscape wall hanging from Nikki Tinkler is also in this issue. There are three great quilt projects, "I See Sea Shells" by Angela Huddart, "Deco Dance" by Sally Ablett for Fabric Freedom and "Goose in the Pond" by Ricky Van Well for Makower. If you feel like a quicker fix, we've got an African inspired bag design by Dorothy Deane, mock trapunto cushions from Pat Stone and a set of juggling balls in Kids' Corner by Sally Stevens. Alicia Merrett has provided us with the instructions for this month's Square Dance. You will recognise Alicia's wonderful fabric buildings, and we're sure you will love making your own version of her classic design. Davina adds the last round to the Stay at Home Round Robin quilt, please don't forget to send us a photo of your completed quilt.
Jane brings us a fantastic report from Paducah in this issue, with some amazing quilts from the US. Linda Forey tells us about her year in Montreal, which she documented with some great Journal quilts. Viv Denscombe has come up with a lovely practical storage solution for keeping Journal quilts in order, and Anne Williams visits The Jen Jones Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter. Last but not least, Jane met up with Elizabeth Boles, whose "Falklands Quilt" in on display in York, as part of the "Sewing in Wartime" exhibition.
