warm homespun greetings

We hope to find you in good spirits for this Winter 2017 issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine. It has been an interesting year in many ways for all of us. We didn’t see it coming, but our city-girl Gretchen has quickly become a farmer with chickens, goats, horses, and numerous dogs and cats roaming the mini farm she and her husband call home. Jeni and her husband have become their family’s solid rock helping their grown children, sweet grandchildren, parents, and just about anyone who can use a hand. Judy and her husband thought they were empty nesters then suddenly became the unwitting, but lucky, caretakers of a sweet dog named “Sis” who looks like a Border Collie and has the relaxed temperament of a Labrador Retriever; Sis…

Dear Mom, I am going to be appliquéing wool on a woven cotton background. I do not hand quilt. Should I machine quilt the background first? I will be using a woven stabilizer behind all woven fabrics. Thank you, Cheryl Dear Cheryl, It is perfectly fine to machine quilt your piece before putting on the wool appliqué, especially if you don’t feel comfortable quilting around the appliqué pieces after they have been sewn down. I know several designers who do it this way. However, I would recommend you quilt a little detail on larger wool pieces after they are sewn down to keep them from puffing out. I like to appliqué my pieces down first by hand, and then machine quilt the project. I practiced a bit on some small “quilt sandwiches” with a couple…
