A Note From the Editor

"You've got to love what you do to really make things happen."
-- Philip Green

I've been quilting for a very long time and one of the things that keeps me quilting and interested is how versatile quilting really is. There's always something new. Blocks are reinvented and the fabrics keep changing.

We've asked our designers for fun new blocks to challenge you and allow you to be creative. We asked for block designs that will inspire you on to the next quilt. Our main theme for the spring issue is "Fun Pieced Blocks." We have five quilts in that section with very unique blocks or interesting fabric combinations. We also have some stunning creative pieces made with mixed techniques, not to mention our usual range of featured projects.

If you want to explore a fun technique and create an unusual block you may want to check out High-Flying Birds. There's another block you may find of interest: Chicken Walk also features one of our fine feathered friends. Not all the theme projects are birds. If you're a fan of flowers, Beautiful Bouquets is rightup your alley.

There is a total of 15 fantastic projects, all selected to inspire your quilting. All you need to do is add your creativity!
