letter from the editor

I think it is exciting to learn something new, especially when it comes to quilting. I hope the techniques we offer in this issue—working with wool (page 30), foundation paper piecing (page 62), sewing miniature blocks (page 76), custom machine-quilting (page 70), and combining appliqué and piecing (page 46)—intrigue you enough to look over a set or two of instructions and give a new-to-you method a try.As quiltmakers, all our staff members enjoy following other makers on social media, and we have fangirl moments when we meet people who inspire us. In order to share some of these makers with you, we are debuting a new feature, “Sew Inspired.” For this issue, art director Elizabeth Stumbo talked with quilt and fabric designer Carolyn Friedlander (page 20).Kaffe Fassett recently marked 20…

from our readers tips

Donna Corry Birmingham, IowaPOWER TOOLAt a hardware store I purchased a screwdriver holder that fits a pegboard. It holds all my scissors, keeping them off my work space, yet handy.Ellen Corning McFarland, WisconsinRIGHT ON THE NAILI use an orangewood stick as a stiletto. It is inexpensive and has a flat end that doesn’t pierce the fabric like metal stilettos can. I usually take a few extras with me on retreats to give to friends when they are struggling to move fabric through their machines.Mary Brownell | Billings, MontanaMAGNETIC FORCEI use strong magnetic clips to hang seasonal quilted banners on my metal front door, sometimes on both the outside and the inside. It saves me from needing to sew hanging sleeves on the banners.Sarah Basinger | Bluffton, OhioTHE BOTTOM LINEMy eyes…

sew inspired by carolyn friedlander

ELIZABETH: How you were introduced to quilting and what was the first project you made?CAROLYN: I grew up watching my mom sew, and I remember being in sewing classes for basic things as a kid. It wasn’t until I was out of college that I had the itch (and time) to get into quilting. Two things got me excited to try it. First, seeing my mom doing free-motion quilting looked to me like drawing, but with a sewing machine. I loved that idea and could immediately see a lot of potential. The second motivator was seeing all of the beautiful fabrics to work with at the fabric store. I loved the bright colors and bold patterns. My first quilt was pretty basic in terms of piecing, loud and colorful in…
