Simple Quilts & Sewing – Winter 2012

If you’re like us, you love to be creative, and sometimes you only have time to make a quick project or gift. That’s why we not only picked easy quilts for you to make, but many smaller projects for your home, your family, and your friends. And if you are like many quilters and sewists, most of what you make is given away. Right? Why not make something for yourself this time? You deserve it!

Maybe you would like a new quilt for your bedroom or a throw to wrap up in while watching television or reading in the family room. There are lots of great quilts to choose from. This issue is also stuffed full of quick-to-make gifts for the holidays, accessories for decorating, and fun projects to make for kids.

We know you have busy lives and creative time is scarce. Try this—give yourself ten minutes at a time to sew. Sit down at your sewing machine while dinner is cooking, or wake up early and take a few minutes for yourself in the morning before the rush begins. Remember, a little sewing at a time is better than none at all!

Happy stitching!
