Many of us have a color we always include in our quilts. I know I try to add a dash of lime green to most quilts I make. Interestingly, my birthstone is peridot, a lime green stone. Maybe that’s why I love that color so much! I know my color choices are influenced by the seasons.

The cool temperature and moisture keep them from drying out. —Kathy Antoniazzi Bethel Park, Pennsylvania THE RIGHT DIRECTION When constructing a quilt top, I arrange the rows of blocks on the floor.

Allison Jensen woodberryway.com “As the mom of three rambunctious boys, I use quilting to relax and have some time for me. My parents bought me a sewing machine in 2013. I didn’t really know how to sew, so it was a lot of trial and error and watching online videos.” Woodberry Way Photo 1: Star Kisses, a pattern by Allison, can be found at her online shop, Woodberry Way (woodberryway.bigcartel.com).
