Quiltmaker's Garden is a 5-part series in celebration of our 30th anniversary.

Quiltmaker’s Garden is a beautiful new series quilt featuring classic blocks from many past issues. Graphic Designer Denise Starck combed the QM archives for ideas and has put together a wonderful design. You can keep up easily since the quilt will be presented in five manageable parts! This quilt would be great for scraps.

    I have been a subscriber to Quiltmaker magazine for years and i am trying to get the foundations for chain reaction block in the March/April issue bonus 120144. I am not buying another issue to get it. Disquested with not being able to get it. Never have trouble with other magazines. Guess we learn who cares, I think if its printed we should be able to get it. Time to change subscribitions.
    Thanks Mary Lou Knapwurst

    I paid for the magazine and want to use the “FREE” patterns.
    Unfortunately, the foundation pattern is on the web and only accessible after paying $13.95………unfortunate. I will NOT be paying more money nor will I be paying for anymore magazines. Is it all about money now?

    I am trying to find the ‘download printer-friendly applique’ at quiltmaker.com/bonus/1204144. I cannot find it. Can you help please.
    thank you

  4. Happy 30th Anniversary, Quiltmaker!

    I think there is a little girl arriving soon that will get this bunny in a year or so, which means I need to go back to the previous ones and pick out an animal to make for her “new” big brother. When a guy gets a promotion, he should be recognized!
