Simple Quilts & Sewing – Spring 2012

We’ve enjoyed selecting projects for this issue that are as fresh and welcoming as spring. You’ll find both quilting on the lighter side and easy sewing projects. If you are a new sewist, we have so many beginner patterns for you, such as pretty yo-yo pillows or an easy casserole carrier. If you are a more experienced quilter, take a break with fast quilting projects that can be completed in an hour, afternoon or relaxed weekend.

At a quick glance, you’ll discover that there is something for everyone…friends and family alike, plus many projects for the home such as the “Game Night” quilt. Is a summer trip on your calendar? Try stitching some personalized luggage tags and a passport holder or even a set of cool striped beach towels.

Sit down with a refreshing drink and take some time to look through this issue of Simple Quilts & Sewing. All the projects have been photographed in beautiful settings, so we hope you’ll feel like you’ve had a mini vacation by just turning these pages.

We trust you’ll find that the joy of sewing will always be a special (and fun) part of your life.

Happy stitching!
