  20. patty rhodeback says:

    This is my all time favorite magazine subscription. I don’t think I have ever found an issue that didn’t have something I just “have to do”. I’ve never done any of the mystery quilts so this should fun.

    I just received my Quiltmaker issue this week and have enjoyed thumbing thru it in the carpool line and during softball practice time. :) I was so excited to see the next mystery starting!! I participated 2 years ago in the Bonnie Hunter mystery and that was the perfect speed for me! I liked having 2 months to get my homework done each time.

    I love that this time around you showed spreads of fabrics that your quilters are using! It gives us a great guide for pulling from our own stash to use. For several quilters in a mystery the “choosing fabrics with blindfolds on” is the hardest part. Now we don’t have to – we can “look” while we pick! Thanks!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
