Love of Quilting March/April 2017 – Fons & Porter

Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting March/April 2017 Featured Projects

Love of Quilting March/April 2017 Magazine CoverHas spring been sprung where you live? We hope that, whatever place you call home, the new season brings bountiful quilting inspiration, and that you are sewing as often as you can.

In this issue, we offer up some fresh and springy quilting ideas, such as Sarah’s Colorwave, Jean Nolte’s pattern that uses our Twisted Triangle Template to create fan-like designs in lush florals. It starts on page 66. And, Cross Road to Grandma’s House, on page 20, is a fresh use of two traditional designs: the Album Cross block and the Snowball block.

No matter the level of your quilting experience, there’s always something new to learn. A very fulfilling challenge would be Bluework, Kathy Munkelwitz’s beautiful batik quilt on page 94 that features appliqué embroidery and pieced borders. Another enjoyable project is Marianne’s Town Square on page 50, which places the Log Cabin block into a clever arrangement.

We hope you will find lots of fresh ideas in these pages. Why not send us a photo of a project you’ve made from one of our publications? We may share it with our readers in “Sew & Tell.”

Happy spring and happy quilting!
