Scal­lops are a bril­liantly straight­for­ward way to add tex­ture to a quilt, while ap­pliqué is the per­fect tech­nique for bring­ing in colour, pat­tern and bags of char­ac­ter. Our six crit­ter tem­plates use the curve of a sin­gle scal­lop as a start­ing point, then em­ploy an as­sort­ment of sim­ple shapes to cus­tomise and show off dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties. Choose from a teddy bear, French bull­dog, bunny, rac­coon, lion or owl (and visit our web­site for two ex­tra de­signs – frog and cock­a­too). This is­sue also in­cludes paper tem­plates for the scal­lops them­selves, while the book­let in­cludes a handy guide to us­ing them with ease. As a fi­nal touch, you’ll find a full walk­through for turn­ing those basted scal­lops into a mini quilt. Head to lovepatch­workandquilt­ing.com for our Tech Ed­i­tor Sarah Griffith’s mini quilt tu­to­rial. You can com­plete it us­ing which­ever an­i­mals have cap­tured your heart the most! And don’t for­get to share your makes with us us­ing #love­quilt­ing­mag – we al­ways love to see what you’ve been up to.
