QUILT – June/July 2011

Dear Friends,

You know what I love about summer—my porches. I can’t think of a better way to start the day than on my front porch. Hearing the birds and smelling the blossoms in the morning coolness just energizes my day. And at noon, lunch on the back porch under the shade of the birch tree is such a refreshing break. Then in the evening, watching the sunset to the harmony of crickets and pond frogs, it’s almost heavenly! You must have guessed by now that I live in the country. But I’m sure no matter where you live, if it’s in the city, country or in between, there are sights, sounds and feelings that cause you to pause and say, “…ahh, it’s summer!”

Those relaxing signs of summer are what we have tried to capture in this issue. Time for picnics, trips to the shore, wilderness outings and bountiful gardens. I hope turning these pages feels like a mini vacation to renew and inspire your love of quilting. My best to you for a time to slow down, read, connect with friends and smell the roses!

    Quilt June/July 2011

    Is there a way to download the Star PP pattern from the internet. I did check your website but couldn’t find the star pattern.
    Thanks Lou Murray

    I just received the new issue and liked the Fabric Buyers Guide and went to do a search on Blank Quilting Pansy Party and it does not exist even at the Blank site. What gives?

    On the cover of the June/July 2011 issue, it says, Learn to Paper Piece. I can’t find that article anywhere in the magazine. What am I missing?

    I desperately need the pattern for “Star Spangled Banner” from the June/July 2011 issue. I got all the fabric needed, then the magazine got water damaged and can’t be saved. I checked the back issues, and this one is no longer available. Any aid will be greatly appreciated!

    I purchased and cut all the fabric to make the Star Spangled banner quilt for my mother. She passed away and the quilt was never made. I can not locate the July 2011 issue with the instructions. Is it still available? I would love to finish in memory of my mother. Thank you! Susan

    I saw a quilt called the Star Spangled Banner recently and was told it was from the June/July 2011 issue. I would love to make that quilt in honor of my son who was a Marine and passed away. Is there anyway I can purchase this pattern. Thank-you.
