  1. Saw the preview – can’t wait for the whole thing! I am dying to get started on my first quilt! Been watching F&P early early Saturday mornings and have the bug.

  2. Awesome! Congratulations. I’m still trying to find your ‘cross’ quilt that you did last year or the year before. Is the pattern availaible? Thanks!

  3. I love, Love, LOVE Quilty and plan to buy this magazine the minute it hits the shelf. I took up quilting in January & have made a few cute projects already thanks to the advice I’ve gotten from the show. I’m hoping the magazine will motivate me to make even more quilts for my family. Good luck.

  4. Go mary—can’t wait to get a copy—will head for barnes and noble hopefully-they will have it soon. Congrats—cover looks wonderful. if it’s half as good as the show –it will be a major success. You infuse great charm,and fun into this cool art form—-as usual keep up the great work—-Renee

  5. Just received my copy of Quilty and all I can say is – More Please -. This magazine is a must for all beginning quilters. In a class so much info is thrown at a person it is hard to absorb. Your clear way of explaining reinforced everything I learned in class. I hope to see many more issues of this magazine. Love the show too.

  6. Love Quilty BUT I had to drive 4 hours to Barnes and Noble to purchase the LAST one. Live in small community and Wallyworld only carried a few. Hope for subscription!!

  7. I found a copy in my grocery store and read it about 5 times so far. Most of the time I pull out patterns for quilts that I like and put them in a binder to save space. I won’t be pulling anything out of this one. The whole magazine is going in. I love that it is more than just patterns. The articles and tips and extras are so much fun to read. I am new to quilting but my mind is already swimming with ideas for projects. I especially liked the volunteer article. I began by using old blue jeans to make quilts for the homeless in DC. They are warm and durable. I have made 3 but the big box of donated jeans in my basement says I have a busy summer ahead.
