On the Cover: Vinter’s Bouquet is pieced in strips. Designed by Carolyn Beam, this throw-size (58″ x 72″) quilt was made with pre-cut 2-1/2″ strips to make the cutting go super fast. Cutting is easy; piecing is easy. In no time, you’ll have a quilt you’ll love. Kits available.
Ocean Currents: This swashbuckling crib quilt uses the simple, yet dynamic, bargello piecing technique to make a super fun quilt super fast. It’s fat quarter friendly and easy to customize to suit your style, plus it’s an ideal introduction to bargello piecing if you haven’t tried it.

Spellbinding: Stacks of books full of potions and spells seem to teeter precariously in this vintage-inspired Halloween table runner designed by Brenda Plaster. You don’t need to be a magician to sew the easy 19″ x 19″ blocks, creating a sophisticated piece of “spellbinding” home decor.
Ancient Tiles: One of the best ways to get a quilt done and on the bed quickly is to use simple blocks and patchwork, as well as large patches, so Terrie Peterson’s queen-size bed quilt pattern is the ideal choice. Beginners and experienced quilters alike will appreciate the attractive design made with simple sewing.
Candy Wrappers: What a treat! This sweet, scrumptious pattern is modern, stylish and comes together in a snap! It’s a great pattern for a favorite fat quarter bundle as each block displays a single print beautifully. The easy sewing, combined with an innovative pattern makes a great project for beginners and experienced quilters alike.
