There’s No Time Like the Present

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. As with most endeavors that are potentially perilous, like driving a car or baking a cake, getting it right simply seems to involve being careful and paying attention.

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

    I can’t wait! I’m working my way out of a dry spell and this issue sounds perfect for me right now!

    Just got the magazine in the mail and am putting it down just long enough to say “WOW, what a great issue!”

    Starting off with the grocery store cover–what a great idea! And certainly a first for a quilting magazine–love it!

    And Libby, Libby, Libby, what was she thinking in collecting all those scissors? Colorful fabrics and threads I can understand, but scissors?!!!! How funny!

    Like Jan, a Lone Star has been on my list for ages. But, I never started one because most of my quilts have 40, 50, or more fabrics, and it didn’t seem that scrappy would work in a Lone Star. But, thanks to Irene and her “Oh!” quilt, I now have given myself “permission” to make a scrappy one. Yippee!
