Block Magazine: April 2015 Issue

If you’re a subscriber to our Block Magazine, then you’ve been enjoying  your April issue for about a month now!  If you’re not a subscriber, what are you waiting for?? 😉

Block May 2015 Cropped

We had a wonderful time putting together this issue, selecting the quilts, and reminiscing about warm weather fun. (You may have been surprised to learn that Missouri folk like us love the ocean just about as much as we love quilting)!

Have you picked a favorite quilt from this issue yet? To get you started, we’ve put together everything you’ll need to turn “inspiration” into “finished project” in a jiffy! Click HERE to find the perfect fabrics, all the necessary templates (and other supplies),  Jenny’s tutorials from Youtube, and even links for machine quilting. After all, what’s the fun of an idea book if those ideas never become reality?

Have a wonderful time working on your quilts, and don’t forget to send us a photo when you’re done!

“Jenny, on your suggestion I started setting my stitches before ironing my pieces open and I am not sure what it does either. I am also obsessed with pre-cuts now! Thanks for the great tutorial and I hope they continue.”
