In an email newsletter last week, we erroneously printed that the blog tour for our Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015 issue would start today. It will actually start next Tuesday, January 27, 2015, but to ease the pain of our typo just a little bit, I’d like to give you a preview of what’s in the issue. There are 21 gorgeous patterns which each feature a twist on a traditional quilt block or idea. Each pattern describes the twist in hopes of inspiring your next original quilt design.
For example, Vivian Ritter combined a traditional log cabin block with an also traditional idea of stained glass quilting in Stained Glass Cabins. Her simple folded flap technique gives the look of stained glass without additional piecing.
And speaking of erroneous printing, we accidentally listed the kit price of Stephanie Sheridan’s Piece of Cake in our Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015 issue as the price that included the price of the backing. It’s actually $59.99 for the kit and $44.99 separately for the backing. You can purchase the kit and/or backing online at Quilt and Sew Shop if you’re interested.
There are many more quilts where these two came from, and we’d be pleased if you joined us for the Best Tradition with a Twist Quilts 2015 Blog Tour next week. In the meantime, if you haven’t had a chance to enter our current giveaway celebrating the introduction of our two new kit of the month programs, you can still enter through 11:59 pm Mountain Time tonight, January 19, 2015.
You may also wish to visit us again for our giveaway which starts this Wednesday, January 21, 2015, where we’re giving away a bundle of lovely fat quarters, a 10″ precuts pack, a Round off Nested Templates Set and other notions from the Staff Picks and Gifts for Quilters sections of Quilters Newsletter December/January 2015!
