Today is what we refer to as our “Go-Live” date for our April/May 2013 issue of Quilters Newsletter. The Go-Live day is when our newest issue becomes available to our digital subscribers, hard copies hit the post office to be mailed to print subscribers and all web content for that issue is uploaded to our website. I figured we’d do one last shout-out to our February/March 2013 issue and giveaway some of the Staff Picks fabric we featured before we start promoting our newest issue.
QN associate editor Gigi Khalsa used the Incense and Peppermints collection by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics for her Staff Picks block. Dominated by a pink, beige and brown palette, this flowery and feminine collection illuminates a vintage-inspired look.
For Incense and Peppermints, one lucky winner will receive a bundle of 18 fat quarters.
Taking a trip over to the more contemporary side of things, QN art director Susan Geddes made her Staff Picks block using Center City by Jay McCarroll for FreeSpirit Fabric. Inspired by eight different cities in America, McCarroll wanted to illustrate his interpretations of these places in an abstract, urban way.
Another randomly selected winner will receive a bundle of 20 fat quarters from the FreeSpirit collection.
And last, but certainly not least, our creative editor, Lori Baker, went with The Morris Apprentice collection by Barbara Brackman for Moda. This rich collection of William Morris designs celebrates the master Apprentice John Henry Dearle. Hired as a showroom assistant in the late 1870s, Dearle went on to be head designer, putting his own stamp on the Morris style.
The final winner will receive 19 fat quarters from The Morris Apprentice.
To enter to win one of these fabric lines, leave a comment on our blog by midnight MST Thursday, February 28. We will select three names at random. One comment per person please. Open to those who haven’t won anything from Quilters Newsletter in the last 90 days.
Thanks to all who participate! Be sure to check out all of the wonderful quilts, tools, tips, articles and patterns featured in February/March 2013.
