letter from the editor

Within a couple hours’ drive from my home, I am fortunate to have multiple quilt museums, which I love. I can visit the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset, Iowa, to see new exhibits quarterly, and Living History Farms in Urbandale, Iowa, to enjoy seasonal quilt exhibits. And in Kalona, Iowa, I can view quilts in the English and Amish galleries of the Kalona Historical Village. I make it a point to immerse myself in the quilts there when I make my twice-yearly trips to Kalona to attend Iowa–Illinois Quilt Study Group meetings. Barn quilt trails, first launched in Ohio in 2001 by Donna Sue Groves, are another travel destination. They since have expanded into many states, including Iowa.

what is your favorite quiltrelated travel destination?

“Quilt shops are my favorite! When traveling, I use my phone’s navigation system to search for them. I also ask the locals the best place to buy fabric. Susan Ache, designer Cottage Style, page 82 “My favorite quilting destination would be Paducah, Kentucky, for the annual AQS QuiltWeek events in late April. The energy and excitement in Paducah during the show are phenomenal and prove quilting is more alive than ever. Many cherished friendships have been made during that show. Tara Lynn Baisden, designer Heartspun Friendship, page 74 “I head to the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, any time I get the chance.

SEAMER FOR SEAMS To press seams while at my sewing machine, I use a wallpaper seam roller. It doesn’t take up much room in my sewing area and can be purchased in the paint sections of home improvement stores. Rose Vislay | via email STITCHED GIFT I use leftover fabric strips to create bookmarks that I give as gifts. I layer two pieces with wrong sides together and zigzag-stitch ¼” from the edges. I let the raw edges fray for interest. The bookmarks can be dressed up with leftover ribbon, decorative stitches, and embroidery. Kimberly J. Sutherland Smoot, Wyoming + For more of our favorite reader tips, visit AllPeopleQuilt.com/tips.
