    I am looking for the pattern #150 Drream on. My daughter worked on an Indian reservation and I would like to make that quilt for her.

    I look forward to receiving each issue of your magazine. The March/April issue just arrived and I have already looked through it many times. I love the patterns in this issue but am especially drawn to the back of the magazine. I would very much like to make these quilted flowers. The website listed with this project doesn’t work for me. I have tried it numerous times. If you can send me a link to this site I would very much appreciate it. Love your magazine!

    My magazine came in the mail yesterday. What a great issue! I really like the innovative ideas I find in Quiltmaker, like the piecing technique for Peg Spradlin’s Square Roots. I read it cover to cover while I was making dinner, then went right to my stash to start pulling fabrics for Bonnie’s mystery quilt!
