Two Awesome Things!

Yesterday was a great day. I know it’s reversed — maybe hold up your computer to a mirror?? LOL!

It’s the second issue ever of Quilty magazine and my advance copy is proof that it’s coming to a bookstore/craft store/newsstand near you! You can also buy the issue online right here. (Subscription info is coming soooon!)

And, also awesome yesterday, and exhibiting how SO COOL I am, here’s what I did on my Saturday night…


I was going to put the “Crown Of Thorns” quilt aside for awhile, but it kept bugging me. Watch for the finished product and the pattern in an upcoming issue of Quilty — I think March/April 2013… Isn’t it wonderful that in 2013 there will be SIX issues of Quilty?

I think it’s pretty neat. Thanks to everyone for reading and writing and sewing. Quilters are great and the Quilty fan is an extra special specimen. 🙂

  1. YEAH! Have been looking forward to the next Quilty magazine to come out. I will be making a trip to town on wednsday. And wednsday night I will sit down with my cup of tea and the new issue of Quilty. Thank-you so much. Julie

  2. I am planning on heading to the bookstore tomorrow to look for my second issue of Quilty. It is great that there will be six issues next year. Thank you for Quilty!!

  3. Drats!!! I cannot find the new issue. No, not a B&N. It’s not even on the grocery store newsstand where the original issue was found and bought, and bought, and bought. Where o! where can Quilty be??

  4. Idp, I just re-read Mary’s post. She is showing us her advance copy so it may not be available at the stores yet. I looked too! Very excited that next year there will be several issues.

  5. Mary thanks so much for putting out Quilty. I have enjoyed the first issue. However, I didn’t realized this was a new issue of magazine. I’m really excited now because I am pretty new to the FonsandPorters website and I have felt a bit over whelmed. But with the new magazine I can look forward to figuring out the web page and reading the new magazine. Thanks so much, Cheryl

  6. Has anyone found the new issue of Quilty yet? I have searched B&N, quilt stores, etc, but no one seems to have it. I was in another state earlier this week, and happened to check out an area quilt shop and local bookstore while I was there-nothing!
    Anxious to read it-loved the first issue!

  7. Dear Quilty, Wednsday night had my tea,no Quilty magazine. I have looked and am still looking. Please let us know when you will be in the stores. Thanks and Happy Days to All.
