We’ve been carrying Quiltmania for about a year. This English translation of a French quilting magazine offers something out of the ordinary in every issue. You’ll always find lots of photos of quilts from quilt shows around the world, a feature on someone who is preeminent in the quilting world (including a peek into their quilt-filled homes), and several great projects. The newest issue, number 59, also showcases basket quilts. Issue 59 includes the first installment of a sampler of small basket blocks–these would be great blocks to hand piece during long summer days by the pool (or in waiting rooms or at kids’ activities). Stop by and pick up a copy for some cool summer reading!
