The quilts section is guaranteed to whet your appetite: there are 24 stunning quilts to choose from in a variety of sizes and styles, made using different techniques and quilting patterns.

There is a mix of hand and machine quilting, and full instructions are given for backing, binding and finishing your quilts. The gifts section contains 44 items to choose from - enough to bust any stash! Choose from cheery home items such as coasters, bags, pillows and toys, or select decorative items such as bunting, a wreath or some scented hanging birds.
