Have you ever pondered the common threads of the fiber art community that stitch together myriad personalities, life stories, styles, and techniques? It’s a wonderful fact of our creative life. Visit any quilt or hobby shop; the people there are as diverse as the fabrics, threads, and notions, yet all share a loving quality that can’t be denied. We think this issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects is a good example of those differences meeting similarities. The projects, of course, range in size from large to small, using various materials, and assorted methods of construction. At the same time, they all brighten our spirits with summer-themed fruit, floral, animal, and patriotic designs.

Whether you are a new quilter or seasoned sewer, we all encounter challenges during the creative process. Send your questions to, and longtime quilter and rug hooker Jeni Gaston might address them in a future issue. Letters may be edited for style, space and clarity. Dear Jeni, I’m just getting started with quilting and with wool appliqué. Can you tell me some of your favorite tools to work with? Thank you, Becky Dear Becky, We thought this was a great question, so we also asked all the designers in this issue! Here are my favorites… I like to do both cotton patchwork and wool and cotton appliqué. I also design patterns. For all projects I like to use a 6½" square ruler that also has the markings for trimming-up half square triangles. Why a 6½" ruler?…
