If you read our last issue, you may remember that we began a pin cushion series. We kicked it off with this Tuffet Pin Cushion pattern:

To be honest, I’m not sure how long the series will run- I guess until I run out of ideas for pin cushions!

What else will you find in this issue?

  • *Strawberry Lemonade Table Runner project. I have decided that pink and yellow is my new favorite color combination- it’s really fresh, pretty, and unexpected. When I was working on the table runner, I cut and sewed too many strips! What to do? I certainly didn’t want to toss them, or just store them away where they would be forgotten. So, they found their way into a
  • *Strawberry Lemonade Mini Quilt, which is also included in the summer issue.
  • *Strawberry Lemonade Cake recipe- in keeping with the theme we have going above!

  • *PLUS we will reveal the winner of the Summer Photo Contest!

    I absolutely love your designs. I am a quilter at heart, how I wish I had the patience for embroidery. I am going to make the beautiful strawberry table topper. So fresh and clean looking. Thank you for all you do.
