It’s getting cold outside, which always makes me want to curl up in a warm blanket by the fire with some hot cocoa and my favorite book. Just in time, our latest issue of Block Magazine has arrived! This issue is special to us… it focuses on the things that we really love and cherish. Family, memories and doing the things we love. Get to know Jenny, her children and grandchildren, as they give us a peek at some of their favorite holiday memories and traditions. This issue also features some really amazing projects that you’ll definitely want to add to your quilting bucket list (I know you have one!).
Here’s a little glimpse of what you can find in the issue.
First, we have the Charmed Spools Quilt. Earlier this month, Jenny did a wonderful tutorial on this quilt pattern. It is so cute with the tall spools and inviting colors… I can just imagine a smaller version hanging on my sewing room wall! If you would love to make this quilt, you can follow all the details in the following link (including the fabrics to buy, etc.)
Of course we had to create our own Missouri Star pattern. We would love for each of our amazing customers to have their own Missouri Star quilt in their homes to wrap around themselves as if we’re giving each one of you a giant hug! If there was a way to actually give each one of you a hug from us, we would make it happen! Perhaps this quilt is the closest thing to that! Either way, this is a beautiful pattern that will always look stunning!
The Patchwork Stocking is so fun and simple. I love projects that look more difficult than they really are and this is one of those… This is a quick, one day project, so it’s would be great to give as a gift or hang them all over your house and it will look like you put your heart and soul into it without having to give up an arm and a leg at the same time!
The Illusion Block Quilt is just so much fun! We’ve been asked many times if there is a pattern for this block and now there is! Whether you decide to use solids or prints, this is definitely going to make a big impact wherever you put it! We just love it!
I love to have something quilted on my holiday table. I can pick out my favorite Christmas fabrics and have something completely unique to go along with all of the delicious food that comes with the holidays. I love this Dresden Placemat project! Change up the fabrics and you could have beautiful placemats for every season. I can even imagine a special birthday placemat that comes out for a child’s special day. Such a sweet pattern and so versatile!
We love this time of year where we get to stop and think about what is really the most important to us. We hope this issue of Block reflects that because we sure enjoyed creating it! This is just a few of the many projects in the issue. For Block susbscribers, if you haven’t received your issue yet, don’t worry, it’s on its way!!
