The quilt made by gangs

Marvellous work by Katarina Thorsen, an art therapist who worked with rival gangs in Vancouver. They created this quilt together using painting, sketching and hand sewing, and the one rule is that nothing was censored.

She’s selling it to raise funds for Operation Sock Monkey.

Oh how I’d love to buy it.

Future, one of my favourite publishing houses, are launching a new magazine, Love Quilting (ooh, here’s a sampler). It’s edited by the marvellous Jen Fox Proverbs.

A cracking excuse to post some of my favourite shape in patchwork form.
