A Note From the Editor

"Oh, Spring! I want to go out and feel you and get inspiration. My old things seem dead. I want fresh contacts, more vital searching."
-- Emily Carr

After a long winter inside, all I want to do is play in my flower beds and witness Mother Nature, yet again, bringing forth her blankets of color. It's a rebirth of inspiration for my quilting. Although, it's the winter months that give me the time I need to actually make quilts, I do my planning and sketching in the spring.

I need the wintertime in my studio to actually work on all the quilted projects that the spring months have inspired.

In this issue you will find spring, with fresh blooms of color in the quilts within. Let them inspire a season of creative quilting whether you spend time inside or out. You'll find table runners, small projects and lots of quilts. There are so many outstanding projects in this issue, I dare not list them all, so page through and select your favorites. If blooms and refreshing colors inspire you, it's here.

There's everything you'll need to kick-start your quilting this spring. I hope you enjoy this issue as much as I did planning it. Let us know what you think at Editor@QuiltersWorld.com.

Enjoy!
