This magazine only comes out twice a year but I always look forward to it. I've saved every issue since the very first one. I don't know why I love this publication so much. I really like meeting the owners and staff at each of the shops. I like the gorgeous photos of the fabrics and displays, and I usually like every pattern offered. I think maybe it's just the perfect combination of ingredients. And who doesn't love going on a virtual quilt shop hop? It's all the fun and no time in the car!
