Hot Off the Press: America Quilts Together

Cover 200px1 Hot Off the Press: America Quilts TogetherI am excited to tell you about our latest special issue: America Quilts Together. Although many of us enjoy solitary time spent cutting, sewing and quilting, sometimes we long for a connection to others who share our passion for quiltmaking. This issue is packed full of ideas and tips for enjoying quilting with others, whether within a local guild, across the miles with friends and family, or even online. You might even be inspired to start your own group!

AQT rainbow 150px Hot Off the Press: America Quilts TogetherWe’ve included 12 fresh quilt patterns that lend themselves especially well to quilting in groups. Just look for the quilters-all-around symbol (above) in each pattern for information on how the design fits into group quilting plans. As an added plus, all the patterns also work beautifully for solo quilters.

AQT flag 125px Hot Off the Press: America Quilts TogetherIn the pages of this issue, we introduce you to over 30 active, successful quilting groups, from 2-200 members strong. We’re certain you’ll enjoy their inspiring stories and photographs – just look for the Quilting Together flag symbol (above) throughout the issue.

America the Beautiful 300px Hot Off the Press: America Quilts TogetherWe’re delighted to include the complete pattern for America the Beautiful in this issue! The quilt was previously published as a series quilt in McCall’s Quilting, and has been a huge reader favorite, with many quilters having made the pattern as a group project. We always enjoy seeing the many different creative versions of a quilt design; we’ve included lots of photographs of individualized versions.

    Quilting has historically been an opportunity for people to gather together for social time while helping one another finish the quilting of someones quilt or making a quilt for some charitable purpose.
