    I have been quilting for about 7 years and I love quilts. I have used your magazine and love it. I like the traditional patterns best, and also love 2 color quilts. I make a lot of quilts for charity and some I just want to keep myself. I am making pillowcase dresses for children in Tanzania at present. (Got to get that done so I can get back to quilts! Keep the beautiful patterns coming!
