If your August issue hasn’t arrived yet, it’s on its way! The theme this issue is growth – your garden, quilting, and you. And me! One of the things on my personal bucket list is to make a Lone Star. I’ve been saying that for years, as my friends are quick to remind me, and as long as I’ve been quilting, Lone Stars have always seemed – well – daunting. But this is the growth issue, and Carol Newby (who can sew anything) has written an article that identifies the pitfalls along the way shows us how to deal with each one.

There are some wonderful examples in the article. It’s time to be inspired, not intimidated!
