Thread Talk feature in THE QUILTER (December 2011/January 2012)

Be on a lookout for the upcoming issue of The Quilter (December2011/January 2012). The magazine will be on sale November 8th, but I suspect some of you who subscribe have already received your copies in the mail:

One of my Thread Talk posts “Swirly Tails” was picked up by the editor for publish. I am so excited!

In the issue, you will also find my quilt projects – a playful version of Coxcombs and Berries,

and Winter Bouquets:

[After you have a chance to look at my Thread Talk feature in the magazine, should you have any suggestions or thoughts for the editor (whether good or bad), you may email them to me at I will compile your thoughts and send them along.]

p.s. #1 I am waiting for the aforementioned quilts to return to me from the editor for more picture-taking before I share about them on the blog.

p.s. #2 I have resumed working – sneak peeks within the next couple of days.

p.s. #3 A Thread Talk post about feather quilting is coming in the very near future!

  1. I am not a bit surprised that “The Quilter” picked up this thread talk. You provide such valuable free motion quilting information that the rest of the world needs to know it too. Thank you for so generously sharing your techniques and skill-building information with us. You are a gem.

  2. Like Jackie said, Congratulations on another published project! I love applique & folk art designs and your coxcombs and currants really fit that bill. I, too, use a lot of yo-yos in my quilting. Looking forward to seeing more about these quilts. And of course, looking forward to more quilting tutes. You make such lovely feathers.

  3. Going to pick up the mag just because of you. I have tried to do your swirling tails, but keep getting lost when I try. I know more practice. Thanks for all the tips.

  4. Way to go, Wendy! I’m wondering about the second p.s.; when did you stop working??? I would imagine that your “future project journal” as something new added to it often.

  5. Congratulations on your lovely published projects! I think I will have to purchase this magazine as I love both projects. I especially love the berries made of buttons!

  6. I saw your polka dot quilt on Fons & Porter today. I also had printed off this thread talk lesson in the summer to practice my drawing. Thanks!

  7. I did get my copy already and your swirly tails quilt design is one I’m practicing today. Just in time for a quilt I need to quilt up. Thank you so much for all of your creativity to inspire us so!

    Congratulations also!!

  8. Your work is out of this world! Thanks to Linda Hungerford I’ve become a quilter in the last year and also a follower of your wonderful blog. Blessings to you!

  9. Way cool Wendy. I definitely want to pick up a copy of this issue. And, I’d truly subscribe if they’d hire you to have a regular article with each issue. Yeap, I definitely would love to see FMQ topics in every quilt magazine, every issue. And, even better if you were the writer!
