A Note From the Editor

Every year, there are different color trends and styles that we see in everything from decorating to clothing and to the fabrics we choose for our quilts. But one color combination that has remained popular among quilters is red and white. This contrasting duo appeals to both traditional and modern quilters and is seen in quilts throughout the year. This combination never seems to grow old. Given the continued popularity of red and white quilts, we have made them the theme for this winter issue. We also show you how these timeless designs work in other colorways for additional inspiration.

We hope to inspire you with the other designs weíre featuring in this issue as well. If youíre looking for some holiday accents to add to your home or to give as gifts, youíll find several that fit the bill from pillows to large quilts. And if youíre ready to start the new year by using up some of your stash, Bev Getschelís Stars on a String will help you do just that.

Have a seat with your favorite warm beverage while browsing through this issue and making your list of patterns to try. I know I have several on my list and canít wait to get started.

Enjoy this issue!
