I've become a big fan of quilting magazines. I feel like I'm getting several patterns for cheaper than the price of one. I suscribe to America Patchwork and Quilting. I was anxiously awaiting my December issue, which comes in October. It didn't come. Then I realized it was probably delivered to our old house. We did leave a forwarding address, but when things slip through the new owowners are not sending it on. Anyway, I bought this issue since it had several Christmas projects in it. I think called and made sure they had the correct address. They were very nice at APQ, even volunteering to send the one I missed. Since I had already bought it they will extend my subscription!
This issue has a feature on one block quilts. I really like this one. The pattern is simple, but I like the qult as a whole. This is an antique quilt with fabrics dating from 1840-1870.
I love anything Fig Tree. Here is a Fig Tree Quilt made with pieces of several different Fig Tree lines. Such a simple quilt, but I love it.
I would really like to make these stockings. They are so cute. Two years ago I made these stockings. I liked them because I can do a different one for each family member, but they coordinate. They are from Under the Garden Moon, which is owned by the owner of American Quilting in Orem. I made two more, but I apparently don't have a picture of them. I also have the patterns for more in hopes of future children that may join our family.
While I was looking for the stocking pictures I found a picture of one of the tree skirts I made last year. I put this on one of my family room trees. I like to put more crafty/homemade looking decorations on it and then I have a formal living room tree. I made another tree skirt as a gift out of a charm pack. I need to find fabric I like for a more formal tree skirt for the living room.
