It's beautiful! Quick Quilts or McCall's Quilting are a couple I've perused. Thank you.

Sewing Mom said...

I follow your blog too. =)

Marit said...

Oh, I can't believe you are giving away your famous pillow! I guess I'd have to say Fat Quarterly, because it's the only one I read. Selection of paper mags is limited and expensive here in Norway.

Marit said...

And I'm a follower:)

Jess said...

Oh Annabella i LOVE that cushion. And it would go perfectly with my lounge quilt!!!
Is it wrong that I don't have a favourite quilting magazine? I haven't bought one in over a year including even the FQ mag. Slack me!
I find that everything I need in the way of inspiration is on the internet, including lovely blogs such as yours!!
(haha that sounds like a terribly suck-up thing to say, but as you are a friend you know it's true ;) )

Isisjem said...

I haven't bought a quilting mag in years. Mainly because there are no newsagents close by and the supermarket/local shops only have a limited selection of any magazines. I guess the nearest I have to a fav would be fat quarterly

Sasha said...

Probably not the best thing to say but I don't really buy magazines. I've tried several quilting and sewing magazines and there tend to be too many adverts. Also the content seems quite old, especially if you read as many blogs as I seem to!
I'm thinking of trying fat quarterly when things quieten down a bit though as I've heard really good things.

pennydog said...

I like Quilting Arts!

joanne said...

I can't believe that you are going to part with your gorgeous cushion!!
