warm homespun greetings

What brings comfort to your soul? The warmth of a baby snuggling his head on your chest? Nestling under a wellworn, favorite quilt while reading an enjoyable book? The calm rhythm of piecing, stitching, and finishing a quilt while wrapped in your own little world? Knowing how you helped a family member, friend, or stranger in need? A soft, gooey, fresh-baked bowl of macaroni and cheese? We strive for comfort; do all we can to embrace and hold onto that sweet comfort zone. That’s why pushing out of the zone is notable. Because we got too comfortable living braless in sweatpants and slippers during the pandemic (raise your hand if the sight of real clothes and shoes gives you anxiety), we thought it would be fun to stretch out of our…

THE LODGE Landscape designer and wine rep Leanne Lindsay hosted our Fall 2021 photoshoot (along with her husband and her sweet dog Elvis) at her Old Mission Peninsula home that the family calls The Lodge. We photograph an issue’s quilts about six months out of season, which can create some make-it-work moments trying to coax a believable winter shoot during the heat of summer or a bright summery shoot when there’s a few feet of snow on the ground and the sun is low. But photographing “fall” in late April was no problem at The Lodge. As it’s a log home, there was a beautiful golden light reflected from the wood walls over every quilt and project … it looked perfectly autumnal. Leanne also graciously pulled out many of her fall decorations for…

rug hooking

Dear Jeni, I don’t want to work with wool and wondered if you can hook rugs with other types of fabric. Thank you, Carolyn Dear Carolyn, Thank you for the great question! When my sister Gretchen and I had our shop, many customers told us they didn’t like wool or were allergic to it. Our answer was that they didn’t have to use wool at all. I personally have used cotton homespun fabric to hook with. I cut my strips on the bias about ½" wide and hooked them just as if I were using wool strips. In our Fall 2014 issue, we had three cute little rugs hooked with homespun by designer Jan Patek. Another rug hooking designer, Nola Heidbreder, has used various materials such as velvet, chenille, fake fur, netting, gold lamé, yarn, organza,…
