Quilt Almanac 2012

Sewing through the Seasons

Quilt Almanac is always one of my favorites since it is filled with great quilts and projects that have a traditional, yet up-to-date look using many different quilting techniques. All together there are 31 projects that are sure to keep you busy through the year 2012 and beyond. From vintage quilts and small sewing projects to easy scrap quilts you can make from your stash, I feel certain you will be inspired.

Learn how to paper piece, make a miniature quilt or strip piece a beautiful table runner. Make a child’s quilt for your favorite little one, or a tote for a summer beach trip. Be sure to celebrate the special events during the calendar year with the stitching of holiday and seasonal quilts and projects.

There’s so much more than patterns in this issue: Go on a virtual shop hop in Vermont (or attend it in person in March!) and get a sneak peek at the newest novelty prints. We sit down with Lynette Jensen to talk about her Thimbleberries company, fabric, patterns, and more. Art quilter Caryl Bryer Fallert shares “Wings of a Dream” in the Last Stitch; hear the story behind this beautiful design. Take a few minutes to digest all the creative ideas in this annual jumbo issue of Quilt Almanac. It’s a treasury of projects that you will want to keep nearby for your sewing pleasure.

My best wishes for you in 2012 as you keep on stitching!

    I really want the quilt magazine, but cannot find it in my local stores. Any ideas where I can buy
    it? All help will be welcome.

    Thank you,

    Farrah.

    Looking at Maria Kalinowski “New York State of Mind” fabric. It states in the almanac to just go to benartex.com. That doesn’t seem to work. Where should we go?

    I absolutely love this magazine. However, I searched this site and the web for a picture of Monique Dillard and Sue Glorch’s First Blush and can’t find it anywhere. :(

    I purchased the latest Quilt Almanac 2012 with the “Spot” the dog quilt pattern but am unable to find the Lily and Will collection by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda fabric locally. Does anyone know if a pre-cut quilt kit is available for this quilt? We are expecting agrandson this summer and I would love to make this for his arrival. Thanks.

    I lost one of the pages to the Beach Tote pattern. Is there a way to get this pattern?

    I, also, am looking for more information about Monique Dillards “First Blush” Quilt. Do you have any suggestions where I can go for that? Her blog didn’t have anything more.
    Thanks,
