’Tis the season for change, renewal, and growth. Everywhere you look, nests are under construction for new feathered families; tree and flower buds emerge, giving way to lovely blossoms; and with increasing daylight and warmth, many of us awaken from seemingly infinite hibernation to embark on self- and home-improvement routines with fresh enthusiasm. This issue’s projects cover the gamut of everything spring, from birds and nests, to bees and bunnies, to florals aplenty. Among quilts in varying sizes, you’ll find a whimsical blooming pillow, a sweet little satchel, a hooked rug, and several wool appliqué runners, mats, and wall hangings. In Designer Notes, you’ll find favorite themes echoed in these very projects. Charitable Causes reveals how friendship can blossom into an amazing movement toward helping so many, especially children. In Ask Mom,…

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.

Thank you, Becky Dear Becky, This is a great question, and I’m sure many people have a different opinion for their favorite method. I touched on this subject briefly in the Fall 2019 issue, but didn’t really explain why. My favorite method for cotton appliqué with turned-under edges is needle turn appliqué.
