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!
