When I returned home from Michigan, there were some goodies in the mail!
Goodies of the favorite kind!
Quiltmaker is the ONLY magazine I get. The skills I have learned from start to finish projects in Quiltmaker have contributed so much to the quilter I am today. Each project does take you start to finish!
The only thing I really didn’t want to see?
The fact that it says DECEMBER and is in CHRISTMAS COLORS already.
I had the same sinking feeling walking through Sam’s club the other night ---ALL the Christmas stuff is out, and every year we go though this…it’s ONLY October! But the closer we get to the end of the year, the faster it goes. It starts with Labor Day and before we know it, it’s tax season!
However, this issue is packed with fun projects – I can give you a sneak preview here:
Just some of the goodies you’ll find inside!
Wait until you see the full quilts..this is just a teaser!
Another thing I love are the articles. This issue is all about sewing with a buddy, or with a group. It includes patterns and ideas for group projects!
And Quilt-cam even got a shout out as a way we can quilt together as buddies from far away:
Here we are!
I love the inclusion of the vintage quilting bee photo – and then there at the bottom is Quilt-Cam! What would those quilting bee ladies think about what we have available to us now!
BTW, did you catch Quilt-Cam last night? NO?? You can access it in the archives by clicking the Quilt-Cam Tab at the top of the blog!
Also included in this issue is my Addicted to Scraps column, and we’ve got a fun block for you this month with loads of possibilities for turning those scraps into a gorgeous quilt!
Circle of Friends Block!
I made this block in honor of all the quilting friends that so enrich our lives. What would be be without them??
What colors would you choose?
Maybe you’ll set them like this:

Good luck everyone! As soon as my morning chores are done, I am up to Quilt Villa for the weekend!
There is a certain Mystery Quilt that needs to become a TOP!
