I've not had new magazines for a while it seems,
but look what came recently!!!!!
I love when I get a squishy envelope!
I like to shop locally, but when the local book store stopped carrying the Quilt Mania magazine, I got online and found a quilt shop that not only carried it, but would ship to me. I talked to the very nice ladies there and asked if they would add four reproduction fabric fat-quarters with each shipment, and they were happy to do so.  Because it's a bimonthly magazine, I receive a new shipment of fabrics every two months, also.  Win/Win!!!
Thank you Homestead Hearth!!! 

Also, I had a magazine on my want-to-read list - which I usually just wait and borrow from the library.  But since I was meeting a friend at the book store, I decided to look for that magazine while there.
I found it! -  the BHG American Patchwork & Quilting magazine and it came packaged WITH the Editors Favorites - Christmas Quilts issue, too.
I love the inspiration from Lisa of Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop, so it was nice to see the Holiday Project magazine bundled together.

So, reading material for the evenings this week,
and great mourning purples and grays to add to my stash!!

Do you receive subscription magazines or pick them up while out shopping? 


  1. Oh wow, it's like early Christmas! And yes, Quiltmania is the best! It seems odd that the best quilt magazine around is published in France! Enjoy your reading time!

  2. They picked out some lovely fabric to send to you. What a bonus! I'll have to go find those magazines. . .

  3. I like those repro purples. Do you have a Barnes & Noble or Books A Million near you? They were going a few issues each month of the Quilt Mania magazine.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
