The Love of Quilting March/April 2017 issue is filled with fresh ideas for a fresh season! We’ve got 12 new projects to usher in spring. Our Sew Easy instructions help you through piecing curved seams, using fusible applique, cutting 8-at-a-time Triangle-Squares and more. This issue of Love of Quilting, like so many others, is the best source for traditional quilts and reliable instructions. Come in and take a look around!
In this issue, we offer up some fresh and springy quilting ideas, such as Sarah’s Colorwave, Jean Nolte’s pattern that uses our Twisted Triangle Template to create fan-like designs in lush florals. And, Cross Road to Grandma’s House is a fresh use of two traditional designs: the Album Cross block and the Snowball block. No matter the level of your quilting experience, there’s always something new to learn. A very fulfilling challenge would be Bluework, Kathy Munkelwitz’s beautiful batik quilt that features appliquéembroidery and pieced borders. Another enjoyable project is Marianne’s Town Square which places the Log Cabin block into a clever arrangement.
