Quilty Winter 2012

We had such warm weather over the weekend – 70 on Sunday! But boy did that drop and yesterday the high was a windy 35. This is the time of year I love to begin to hibernate at home. We kind of joke that we won’t see any of our neighbors for the next 6 months and it’d be true if it weren’t for the bus stop. (I also laugh in April when people start taking coats off at kid-pickup and you discover all sorts of new people are pregnant – just couldn’t see it under all the layers! LOL)

Quilty Winter 2012

That really has nothing to do with today’s post, except maybe to say when I hibernate, it’s nice to have some magazines around to read. 😉 And it’s pretty cool that I have a quilt in the current Winter 2012 issue of Quilty! Do you remember my Candy Pinwheels quilt from last Spring? Well, you can imagine my excitement when none other than the SUPER nice Mary Fons emailed me and asked if they could include it with a full pattern in Quilty magazine. Um, let me think about that for about 2 seconds – YES!

Quilty Winter 2012

It did take a bit longer to negotiate with my little 5 year old who was the current owner of the quilt. It was made special for her and she slept with it every night. And those of you that have/had/know 5 year olds know that a special blanket is not something to be taken lightly. What can I say, she ended up getting a Hello Kitty sewing machine out of the deal. I’m not above a little bribery. She was thrilled when it came back in the mail though.


You can find this magazine at stores now. I’ve seen it at Barnes and Noble and have friends that have even found it at their local grocery store (Kroger). There’s lots of great patterns inside, including some from Anna Maria Horner, Amanda Jean Nyberg (cover quilt!) and Mary Fons. I hope you will go check it out!

    You always wonder when you give a quilt away if the recipient appreciates all the hard work involved putting it together. Well, your daughter did! Congrats!

    I so relate to your hibernating instincts!!! 🙂
    This time of year my art and sweing go into High Gear…there are times I will choose to do housework or laundry just to be able to have a ‘reason’ to stay inside. 🙂

    I know I’m addicted to your quilt creations when I run out looking for your patterns featured in the latest quilt magazine! I have just spent the last 10 minutes staring at the Candy Pinwheels quilt trying to figure out the layout. Well, I’m off to look for the Winter 2012 Issue of Quilty…….

    What a great looking magazine. Wish we could get it here in England then I could sew the quilt your daughter loves so much for one of my grandchildren.

    Hi Faith~~I could just kick myself!! I ran in Kroger just a bit ago and noticed the magazine on the shelf. I was in a hurry and kept going. Now after reading your post, I am so mad at myself. Guess hubby will be stopping by after work tomorrow.
    I really enjoy all your beautiful creations!!

    Very very cool and as someone with an almost 4 yr old and an almost 6 yr old I can certainly attest to the importance of special blankets. Life would be miserable without them. Congratulations. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of that one myself.

    Congratulations! How have I missed this magazine? Even the TITLE is cute!

    You know, I’ve been a subscriber to Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine for a long time now, and it’s the only quilting magazine I’ve subscribed to. They always feature such inspirational, unusual quilts, and I enjoy that they have a mix of beginner, intermediate, and advanced patterns in every issue, since I’m not ready for the “advanced” and even their definition of “intermediate” is a reach for me. Still love to be inspired, and to see quilting techniques that I can aspire to learn. –BUT– I’ve been feeling alienated by QNM lately. All of the quilters they feature seem to be grandmothers with gray hair, all of the advertising features senior citizens, and the big insult came in this month’s issue, a big pullout catalog of ugly, cheaply made clothing in XXXL sizes right in the middle of the magazine. Looking through QNM, you’d think quilting was only for old, fat women. That’s so offensive and short-sighted, since there are so many men and women of all ages who are innovating and enjoying quilting, and we are doing it in plain sight, all over the internet!

    Besides Quilty, what other quilting magazines do you read, Faith? I need to find some new ones!
