PRIMITVE QUILTS AND PROJECTS

This is the new issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects. I had heard of this magazine, but was not able to find one. I found this one at Barnes and Nobles. My editor said they had been spotted at JoAnn's. It is full of fun, warm projects just right for winter. Check here for their web site.
