Love of Quilting September/October 2019

Here at Love of Quilting magazine, we are celebrating our 20th anniversary. The first issue of Love of Quilting was the July/August issue in 1999.

I have a handful of issues from those first few years in my office and I keep looking at them and thinking about how things have changed and yet how things stay the same.

Quilters still like to make beautiful quilts. Quilters still like to give to others. But fabrics have definitely changed. And ever-inventive quilters have come up with new tools and updated techniques that make quilting both easier and more accurate.

We’ve started the special year with Trunk Shows from the founders of Love of Quilting magazine, Marianne Fons (page 40) and Liz Porter (page 54).

During the coming year, watch for an anniversary quilt that features blocks from past issues. I really love this quilt. We’re planning to start that pattern in the November/December 2019 issue. It’s worth waiting for.

Join us through the coming months as we continue to celebrate. We are having fun. I think you will too.

Happy quilting,
Lori
