    I am just finishing piecing this quilt. It is spectacular and I changed the greens to blues. I used from navy blue to lt blue ranges and it really is beautiful. I just want it to be bigger and am thinking of enlarging it with more pieced blocks. I just haven’t figured out what to do with it yet! I like how it is put together in 4 separate blocks so I can quilt it as I go, easier!

    I am looking for this pattern. It was in one of your magazines but I do not know which one. Can you help me?

    Good morning Fons and Porter, I have subscribed to your magazine since 2006 and I am now thoroughly disgusted with the digital scenario that is currently in place, I have changed passwords, downloaded items and still cannot read my magazine. I subscribed directly with F&P but on my Quilting company account it states that I do not have a subscription yet I’m getting emails to access my magazine. This is just getting to be too hard to try to enjoy what used to be a great experience. Please note that I will not be renewing my digital subscription. Also advise me when my subscription finishes.

    I have been trying for the past couple of days to obtain the half clamshell template to start my quilt. I have not been at all successful. How and where can I purchase the half clamshell template? I live in Canada.
