Quilter's World - - Editor’s Letter -

As a quil­ter, I cher­ish my free time. I try to plan ahead so that I have projects ready when I dis­cover a free af­ter­noon or a long-over­due free week­end. With that thought in mind, many of the projects in the sum­mer is­sue of Quil­ter’s World were se­lected be­cause they’re time-friendly and can be planned ahead. Sum­mer is the time of year when many of us tend to have ex­tra chores and com­mit­ments. It’s not al­ways easy to squeeze in the time to do what we love— quilt­ing.

There are six great ta­ble run­ners in this is­sue and any one of them could be made in a week­end, or if you’re am­bi­tious you could make the one of your choice in a day. Look­ing to learn a fun and dif­fer­ent tech­nique for Cathe­dral Win­dows? Well, we have one of those also. Make a cute ta­ble top­per while you learn this tech­nique on page 68.

We have sev­eral lovely bed quilts in this is­sue. Some are quick and easy, and some will re­quire a bit more time. All of them are worth con­sid­er­ing. If you have an up­com­ing baby shower, there are a cou­ple baby quilts with lots of color op­tions.

All in all, there are 16 great projects to se­lect from. We also have our on­go­ing col­umn writ­ten by Debby Brown, “Quilt­ing on Your Ma­chine.” Let Debby teach you all the tips and tricks to suc­cess­ful free-mo­tion quilt­ing on your ma­chine and help you build your con­fi­dence. Sum­mer is the perfect time to prac­tice.

I hope you en­joy this is­sue of Quil­ter’s World as much as I en­joyed plan­ning it for you!
