warm homespun greetings

Although the coming months bring somewhat official opportunities to practice generosity, gratitude, and compassion, we see these qualities in play year-round when it comes to the quiltmaking world. Need a hug? Ask a quiltmaker. Need to raise money? Raffle a donated quilt. Need a gift idea? Make a quilt. Need a good laugh? Visit your nearest fabric store. For this last issue of 2021, you’ll find plenty to feel good about and plenty to share. There are designs reflecting flora, fauna, and the universe—all homey and cozy. Get ready to settle in!

If you’re like us, you read the Zillow listings frequently. On a warm day in July, we came across an idyllic northern Michigan retreat—a real log cabin with three fireplaces located on a great fishing, kayaking, and tubing river. We were sure it would look very sweet decorated for the holidays … so we telephoned and made our pitch to shoot the Winter issue at the property. Lucky for us, homeowners Shari and Phil Hufford agreed and allowed us access for a day to photograph this issue (and it turns out that decorating for the Christmas season is one of their favorite memories in the cabin).

PRETTY PUMPKINS This is my front door hanging for fall that I made using Debbie Kuehn’s pattern from the Fall 2021 magazine! I loved making it! —Peggy Nelson A FAMILY MASTERPIECE Here is my version of Dashing Through the Snow that was published in Winter of 2016. I had intended to just do the center piece as a pillow or framed wool appliqué as I do not know how to quilt, but then COVID hit and I thought, this pattern is so beautiful, why not? My mom, Jo Teeguarden, lives down the street, so she pieced it together for me and I ordered a hoop and batting and hand quilted it.

playing with color

Dear Jeni I find myself really loving some patterns that call for brighter or lighter fabrics, but after spending years decorating with darker primitive colors, I don’t want to make them, even though I like the pattern design. Have you ever changed up a colorway on a pattern to make it fit your style? Thank you, Laura Dear Laura, Thank you for your great question! My sister Gretchen and I owned a quilt shop for 12 years, and we heard this from many people over those years. They would come in and say that we just didn’t have anything for them, because they didn’t like wool, or didn’t like Civil War prints. We always tried to win them over by having them pick out a pattern and helping them see that we could pick out…
