As 2020 dawns—a year that existed in our minds as ‘The Future’ since we were small children—we at Love of Quilting decided to take a look backward, at who we’ve been as quilters. We have a rich heritage, filled with stories and styles, that are worth remembering, re-telling, and re-inventing. To that end, our Trunk Show feature focuses on an extraordinary quilt. Started in the early 1900s by a Potawatomi healer, this ancestral quilt was re-discovered in a box of scraps, and was completed to create a multi-generational treasure. We’re also introducing a new running feature to the magazine, called Then & Now. Written by preeminent quilt historian Barbara Brackman, this article will explore the trends that defined a specific era, and compare them to the way we quilt now. The patterns in…

This also works great for spotting your luggage on the airport carousel. Evelyn Campeau Fort Kent, AB IN WORKING ORDER Sometimes my organized pieces become disorganized. I purchased alphabet beads and pin them to my strips to keep them in the correct order. Tanya Thompson Milford, MI TOUCH AND GO With the dry weather and lots of static electricity, I pin a lint roller sheet to the side of my pin cushion.

I made Red Between the Lines from the Love of Quilting January/February 2017 issue. I saw Marianne Fons on Love of Quilting TV; she gave great instructions and the magazine had very good directions, making this quilt a breeze! I have been quilting for many years and your TV series and magazine keep me inspired. Sarah Thompson Beaverton, OR My wife Hannah made Cactus Blooms from Love of Quilting January/February 2017. Hannah loves quilting. We have had a difficult time this past year. I was involved in a car accident and was temporarily disabled for about a year. She took care of me every day. She is strong, but I know this year has been hard for her. Even with all of those things going on, she still made time to quilt. Andrew…
