95-degrees and visions of sugarplums dance in our head
As summer temperatures hover in the 90s, there is nothing more refreshing then to witness the introduction of the exciting new Winter designs and patterns. You can always count on great new fabrics featuring the traditional Snowflakes and Santas, or ribbons of candy canes and bows, but what about Penguins in top hats and snowmen with attitude? And then there are all the new colors and textures, new pattern ideas, gift ideas, stocking stuffers … it’s definitely ‘Christmas in July’ and the perfect time for quilters to start ‘making a list, and checking it twice’. In fact, you can start your holiday shopping right now at www.ShopFonsandPorter.com. For example, check out our Christmas Joy book and its great holiday sampler quilt - what a fun way to start your own family Christmas tradition!
Or, browse through all the great notions and gift items, and stock up on some fun stocking stuffers like retractable tape measures, or clever ID tags for the quilter-on-the-go. Or, maybe a Quilt Journal would make that perfect gift for a special quilting friend.
And, for project ideas, remember to watch for the next issue of Easy Quilts, which should be on the stands August 1. There are lots of new ideas and patterns that are sure to inspire you to create a perfect gift for any occasion.

A good investment … submitted by Peggi Williams of Hale, MI
Next to my sewing machines, my best investment is my subscription to your magazine. I recommend it to everyone including customers at the Wal-Mart where I work. There is always a Fons & Porter project on display there. This Tea Pot quilt is from your May/June 2006 issue. It is on display right now. Thank you, thank you!
BINGO! … submitted by Janet Wilson of Antioch, CA
In your Sept/Oct 2006 issue, you ran a wonderful quilt bingo game. As block of the month chairman this last year, I decided to use those big bright blocks for our December block. We asked each member of our guild to make two blocks. We played Bingo at out annual Christmas part and had great fun! After the party, all of the blocks were donated to our Donation Charity Block Chairman, and they were made into donation quilts by guild members. These quilts have been a big success, and given to our many charity groups. This picture is just one of many of these great quilts. Thanks for the wonderful, fun ideas; we really enjoy your great magazine.
