warm homespun greetings

In the year’s final season, it’s easy to lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of holiday extravaganzas, from Thanksgiving dinners, to shopping and decorating. We make guest lists, to-do lists, and shopping lists, check them twice, and add more items before half of the original items are crossed off. We hope to make your gifting and decorating a little easier. All the projects in this issue make great gifts for those on your list, and for yourself! From table toppers, mats, and runners, to wall hangings and stockings, we’re sure you’ll find plenty of ideas and inspiration. We can’t wait to get started on some of these beauties! Our Charitable Cause is a great example of rallying generous quilters from everywhere to raise funds for important work, in this case, supporting…

about the project

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…

Usually, I put little stickies to indicate pages that feature projects I want to make. In this case, I'd have to mark every article. You just keep getting better and better. Now, if I can just find the time to get some sewing done. — Geri Alper Here’s my cotton and wool version of Jill Shaulis’ Fall Welcome from your Fall 2018 issue.

Dear Jeni, I hear from many quilters that we should always label our quilts. Can you give me some ideas on how to do this? Thank you—Sally Dear Sally, Thank you for asking this question. I am a firm believer of signing your work, just as a painter would sign his or her painting. However, I must admit, I haven’t signed everything I have ever made, but my intentions were good! Think of it this way: Have you ever wished you knew the story behind a quilt you found at an antique store or thrift shop? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all those quilters of the past signed their quilts? There are several ways you can do this. One way is just literally signing the back of your quilt right on the backing with…
