Spring 2014

Our Spring 2014 issue (on sale March 25) is packed with over 20 modern and traditional projects that will brighten your home. Shimmering Garden is perfect spring décor and a reminder that after a long cold winter, April showers really do bring May flowers. The adorable wildlife critters in Tree Houses make this a fun kid's quilt. Karma is simple to piece and lends itself to free-form construction—as does Conservatory, both showcasing spectacular contemporary fabric. Read about quilt designer Lorraine Fantegrossi's creative process in her neo-realistic A Drip of Paint and Thread work. Also see Trendswatch and our Fabric Gallery for the latest and greatest in ideas and products.
