We’re very excited about the March/April issue of Quiltmaker, in mailboxes, at shops and on newsstands now! With this issue we kick off our year-long 30th Anniversary Celebration. A few highlights you’ll want to see in this issue:
• 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.
• Quiltmaker’s Timeline and a feature called 30 Years of Fabric put quilty things in perspective. You may not remember a time before rotary cutting, foundation piecing, design software and blogging, but many of us do!
• “Sew Beautiful Borders” is this issue’s theme, and we have the quilts to prove it. Around Town (above) is one of three quilts featuring pieced borders. A Perfect Fit is a Skillbuilder article with 12 tips to help make pieced borders fit. This is part of our ongoing effort to help you build your quilting skills.

We’ll save the rest of this issue’s highlights for another post. See you then!
