warm homespun   greetings

Whether or not your weather is spring-ish, this is our Spring issue, and we are excited for a great new year of hope, love, and friendship. We love the fresh batch of projects on the following pages, and asked the designers to share their thoughts and memories of the transformation from winter to spring. In Designer Notes we hope you find their answers as heartwarming and inspiring as we did. These gals are amazing every time! It always warms our hearts when readers share with us their versions of the projects we publish. You’ll find several sure-to-become family heirlooms in Your Voice, including one with a very special model! Last year had its share of natural disasters, so in Charitable Causes we focused on two organizations doing their part to help those…

about the projects

Templates You will notice the format of the templates varies from project to project. The primitive style is all about personal expression and individuality, and whenever possible, we have used the original hand-drawn artwork of our project designers to preserve its primitive charm. General Guidelines Before starting each project, keep these basics in mind: Yardage requirements are based on 43/44"-wide 100% cotton fabric Sew with a ¼" seam allowance unless otherwise noted Sew with right sides together unless otherwise noted Project Level of Difficulty Our technical editor has assigned each project a level of difficulty—beginner, intermediate or advanced. Our handy “crow” system will help you decide which project best suits your particular skill level. Results We believe the instructions for the projects are accurate. The projects have been proofread by our technical editor. Because materials, equipment, and individuals vary, your…

ask mom

Hi Jeni, I am a quilter of many years, and want to try wool appliqué. I just picked up your fantastic magazine, and I just want to make sure…do you use regular wool material or felted wool? Is there an easy way to keep the blanket stitch even? Thanks for your help, I’m so looking forward to getting started, Jan Hi Jan, Thank you very much for the compliment on our magazine! You can use regular wool fabric, but you will need to felt it first. Throw it in the washer on a hot/cold cycle with mild laundry soap. Then throw it in a hot dryer! This will “shock” the wool, which is what we call Felting! If you start with a very thin wool, you may need to run it through the wash cycle…
