warm homespun greetings

This is our Fall issue, reminding us we passed the halfway point of 2019. Although temperatures will begin to drop, we have plenty of projects to keep you warm and happy, with hints of the fall harvest, spooky Jack-o-Lanterns, snuggly comfort, and dappled sunlight amid showy autumn hues. We are also closing in on completion of the 2019 multipart projects. You’ll find the final installment of Homestead (Heather Gavin and David Greenway) in this issue, while the other 4-part series will finish up with our Winter issue. The changing colors and textures of fall inspired the question for Designer Notes. See page 62 to see what the designers came up with! Our Charitable Cause column is a two-fer.

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…

I have been learning to sew patchwork and simple appliqué, such as raw edge with fusible web. I think I would like to do more difficult things, but I’m really having trouble getting over my fears of not doing them well, because my patchwork and appliqué aren’t all that perfect. Can you give me any advice? Thank you, Sandy Dear Sandy, This is an excellent question! Once upon a time, when my sister Gretchen and I owned The Woolen Willow quilt shop, I taught a once-a-month class making small quilts. I was happy teaching what I knew, which was just the basics in patchwork and wool appliqué. We had this wonderful needle turn appliqué quilt on loan hanging in the shop that I was in love with and wanted to make. I decided to…
