I don't normally buy hard copies of quilting magazines, or any other kinds of magazines. There is so much great content online, and the paper waste just about kills me. But every so often, only the real thing will do; one of those times is a beach trip.
Obviously I'm not going to bring my laptop or iPad to the beach, so I splurged in the grocery store when I spied this gorgeous cover on the 100th Issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting. (Confidential to Frances: there was no plastic wrapper.)
I love the bright scrappy cover quilt, and found several inspirational patterns and pictures inside. One of the surprising urges I felt was to make the apple core quilt on page 20. I've never done much curved piecing, but somehow this doesn't look so difficult.
I'm also contemplating the scrappy quilt contest. Do you have a scrappy design in you?
