At TQL, we’ve heard some nice feedback from folks who’ve read “Mending Communities, One Sewing Machine at a Time” in the February issue. It’s the story of the Sewing Machine Project, an effort to distribute used, unwanted sewing machines to people who need them, here in America and all over the world. Margaret Jankowski, who...
The Mother’s Day Quilters, originally from Marietta, Georgia, have been meeting for more than 30 years. As you might imagine, there’s been a lot of water under the bridge since the quilters first met in the 1970s. Lola McCracken’s article (“Two Weddings and a Funeral”, in the February TQL) is about the group, which still...
Jan Magee shares a little quilting design inspiration.
Cheryl Arkinson and Amanda Jean Nyberg are one of the perfect combos we feature in the February TQL. The modern quilters met online, and they didn’t actually meet in person until after they’d written a book together. And without ever being in the same room (or the same city, or even the same country), they...
One of my favorite features in TQL is “Helping Hands.” Here, in every issue, we have a chance to showcase the incredible generosity, creativity, and persistence of people who use sewing and quilting to make a difference in the lives of others. In the February 2013 issue, on newsstands and in mailboxes now, we have...
For everyone who has been patiently waiting (and for those of you who haven’t been so patient, too), the app that was featured in the “Digital World” article in the December 2012 issue, Infinite Variety, is once again available at iTunes and Google Play (formerly known as the Android Market). And guess what? It’s still...
If you read “The Family Business” in the December issue of TQL and know New Jersey geography, you may have realized that Manalapan, where Linda Hahn and her family live and work, was right in the path of Hurricane Sandy. We were really relieved when we heard from Linda last week. She and her Frog...
It was a delight to talk to Mary Owens, the quilter whose wonderful Rose and Sage is in the December issue of TQL. Mary makes her quilts entirely by hand, because she loves hand sewing. Imagine that! One of the charming little (yes, only 4”) blocks is a tulip, with an appliquéd stem. We left...
Kathy McNeil told me how she came up with the inward-pointing prairie point border on the December TQL centerfold quilt, Audubon Christmas, and I had to smile. The innovative edge treatment really completes the look Kathy was after–that of an embossed Christmas card. “My uniquely creative spin on an old border idea was actually a...
Take a look at the photo of Frosty Flakes, Cheryl Lynch’s elegant winter wall hanging, in the December issue of TQL. That picture was actually taken in August, at the home/studio of TQL photographer Gregory Case and his wife/photo stylist Elena Morera. TQL editor Irene Berry and I were there to try our hand at...
