Quick Quilts, Issue #117 – Fall 2010

Sew Delicious

To me, quilting is like cooking. You begin by finding a pattern, like a recipe, that appeals to you and collect the materials. After following the steps to create your project, you sit back, relax, and enjoy the results.

Bring both quilting and sewing into the kitchen with several food-related projects for foodies and quilters alike. Try a clever pie wrap, a whimsical oven mitt, or a harvest table setting, all simple sewing projects you can make in a day. After you’re done sewing, take your talents into the kitchen and bake the delicious apple pie.

Of course, this issue is packed with quilt patterns as well. Two star quilts, Red, White & Bright and Victorian Star, offer different piecing techniques, and Spice of Life uses easy raw-edge appliqué. Check out all our projects for some tastefully simple ideas.

Happy Quilting!

    Just a quick question about your “all wrapped up” fabric pie holder, page 10-11, quick quilts.
    When I made the straps they turned out to be one inch wide, yet in the picture they appear larger.
    I also had difficulty sewing thru all the layers of the handles. What size are the finished handles suppose to be?
    Thanks. It looks like a great idea, but I certainly am questioning my interpretation of the pattern instructions.

    Managed to finish the project and it looks awesome. Found the instructions some what confusing. Mostly relied on pictures to follow the project.
    As an engineer I would have loved to see the distance from the corner to where we have to set the small handles. But it was a good project that I will recommend anyone to make.

    It appears that Fright Night Halloween cutting instructions left out something. Under the Black with Orange Stars – cutting the 1-1/2″ squares is not listed in the cutting instructions.

    First let me say that out of all the magazines I read yours are my favorite. I read them over and over again. When subscribing is there anyway to subscribe to your other magazines such as simple quits and others besides Quilt? Also do u offer electronic subscriptions?
