Happy New Year, everyone! I'm glad that 2011 is now behind us with its many challenges, including the poor economy. I know many friends and family are still struggling during these difficult times and I hope 2012 will be a brighter year for all. And speaking of a brighter year, here's some good news for all you fellow quilters who love primitive-style projects. As editor of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine, I bring glad tidings of the spring issue, coming soon to your mailbox or a newsstand near you! Here's the inviting cover with Cheri Payne's pieced basket quilt.

We've packed this issue with dazzling tabletop quilts, delightful bunny designs, scrappy quilts and much more to jump-start your creativity this spring. You'll find projects by some of your favorite designers—Paula Barnes of Bonnie Blue Quilts, Maggie Bonanomi, Lisa Bongean, Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm, Jan Goos of Goos Nest, Lynda Hall, Dawn Heese, Heather Lynn, Janice Minear, Jo Ann Mullaly, Gloria Parsons of Olde Green Cupboard, Marcie Patch, Cheri Payne, Renée Plains, and Tonya Robey. This issue also includes a bonus project from Renée—a quick and easy vintage-style pin cube inspired by her collection of these charming sewing notions. If you don't already subscribe, I hope you'll check us out! You can find the magazine in several quilt shops as well as Barnes and Noble.
