Four of the LMQG members recently took part in a design challenge set by Fat Quarterly. The challenge was to design and make items using fabric from the ‘VeloCity’ range by British Designer Jessica Hogarth. One of the items made was this ‘city squares’ quilt by Beth Studley. You can read more about the design on Beth’s website lovefrombeth and you can download a tutorial to make your own here.
