Love of Quilting March/April 2018Winter can seem so long, and it often overstays its welcome, well into March. Then comes a day–so quietly it practically sneaks up on you—when the emerald green of new growth pushes up from the tawny, tired winter grasses, and a celery-hued fuzz of young leaves appears on the trees.

Ah. Spring. FINALLY!

In gratitude for that season of renewal, we’ve picked a special bouquet of quilts for you. There’s Greeny, such unabashed celebration of the vivid color, we couldn’t name it anything else! And then there’s the lovely Morning Glory, an appliqué quilt in greens and purples that will be a wonderful, contemplative project to work on as the season blooms. Inspired by last summer’s eclipse is a quilt named, well, Eclipse! This quilt truly welcomes the warmth of the sun. And, of course, a special, tip-o’-the-hat to Saint Patrick’s day called Dublin Town, double Irish chain that we featured on the television show.

Speaking of TV, both of us took turns appearing as special guests on the latest season of Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting. It’s fun to stop back on the set to join you all, and I hope you enjoy seeing us there!

In this season of change and freshness, you’ll find that our shows— along with our articles, tutorials, patterns and advice—have shifted over to a brand-new, beautiful website,! We’re joining our sister publications under one umbrella, The Quilting Company. Stop by to get all the Fons & Porter content, as well as stories, patterns, techniques and video from McCall’s Quilting, Quiltmaker, Quilting Arts, and more!
