Over £2000 worth of prizes to be won!
Most of us have a favourite colour or shade we are drawn to, a colour that sneaks into many of our quilt designs and takes up more than it's fair share of space in our fabric stash, what's yours?
Do you remember when an essential part of making a playground friend was to find out if their favourite colour was the same or at least didn't clash with your preferred shade. Or when knowing all the members of a bands favourite colours was as vital as being able to recite the lyrics to their latest hit? Most of us have a favourite colour or shade we are drawn to, a colour that sneaks into many of our quilt designs. In celebration of the wide variety of hues you love we are launching a competition to make a small Sketchbook Quilt on the theme of My Favourite Colour.
The quilts will be displayed on our stand at the Festival of Quilts in August 2016. The theme can be interpreted in any way you wish and use any technique, they just need to be three layers and measure 10 1⁄2in x 15in. To help you get started you will find a free piece of 279 Cotton Mix 80/20 Natural Blend wadding with this issue for you to use to make your quilt, kindly provided by Vlieseline (sorry, the wadding is only free with issues bought in the UK).
The winners will be selected by you as we will be asking visitors to our stand at Festival of Quilts to choose their favourite quilts.
Well, it is slightly bigger than A4, but not too large to take risks. It is a size to be creative with, and have fun! We will be asking some of Popular Patchwork's regular quilt designers to create a quilt each month between now and the July issue, and our editor Liz kicks off this month with her pink quilt on page 18 of our March issue.
