Summer, summer, I love you! Summer shines on all that we do, our hearts are light and happy times roll. Our summer issue is all about making things that we can take to a day at the beach like quilts and bags. There are 5 different kinds of bags to sew, crochet, knit – you don't want to miss these! Knit up a gorgeous lacy cover up you can almost use as an evening dress. And what about an easy and quick-to-knit-up summer shell that keeps the sun shining well into the evening? Gotta make it! Every magnificent project in this issue spells out SUMMER! Also, in this issue is the big reveal of the Quilt Challenge, see these quilts and read about the 7 ways to incorporate design elements in your future quilts! Let the sun shine on!
