If you’re a subscriber to Quiltmaker, by now you’ve probably received your Sept/Oct issue. If you buy QM on the newsstand, look for it locally—it’s one not to miss.
Jo’s Pumpkin Patch graces the cover of the issue, with its rich dark background and a bit of corner applique. What says autumn more than pumpkins on the vine?
