We Have It, It's Here!!!!

 We have just received 12 copies of Primitive Quilts and Projects Spring 2013!  This magazine is full of patterns and articles for the primitive quilter, rug hooker & stitcher.  

This is actually the first issue that I have ever owned so of course I had to devour it from cover to cover last night.  LOL  I love the colors and the general quality of the artwork of the pages, let alone the artwork on the pages.  Wow.....there are patterns for 17 projects ranging from big to small with designs from our favorites Kim Diehl and Lynne Hagmeier and other "soon to be" favorite designers.

We also received our "Foldy Stuff" patterns from Donna Poster.  

She had developed a method of making quilt blocks, which are traditionally pieced, easier and more accurate than regular piecing.  And as Betty Doherty says "you don't have to sew a straight seam". 

You can check this out on Donna's website.  Betty is teaching this technique next week here at The Christmas Crab Quiltery!  Call 328-6018 to reserve your space.

Once you learn the technique, Donna has lots of patterns and even offers free patterns to download.
