Behind the scenes for Quilty’s Fall/Winter 2012 issue!

We’re shooting quilts for the Fall/Winter issue of Quilty here in Des Moines, IA. The quilts are stunning, the house where we’re shooting is super chic, and we’re all eating way too much candy in downtime.

Check it out — and look for the second and even more awesome issue of Quilty on newsstands on October 30th!!

Our fabulous photographer Catherine adjusts the shot of…

…Mary’s “Little Churn Dash” quilt!

Tools of the trade: an apple box and a color correction card. Hey, you may need to know these things someday.

I haven’t really started to piece quilts, but enjoy watching, as well as quilting what others have done.

First I want to say I love your video’s an tips Mary:) And also it’s an insperation to see a very young new beginner do such a ” benissimo “, means great! great job. I have only been sewing for two years and she did her first valor quilt that’s outstanding in such a short amount of time with her grandma’s help and hope to inspire my neice Trinity to do the same too. love your show, Rachel

Thank you for your comments. We always do a test market on newsstand before we do subscriptions. The next issue is out on newsstands in January.

I think I got my daughter-in-law interested in quilting. She borrowed my copy of Quilty and I haven’t gotten it back yet. Please hurry hurry hurry with the next issue.

Loved the first issue and can hardly wait to see what you do next. As someone who has retired recently, I can now get back to the sewing I had no time for when working. I have been busy making a variety of quilts for gifts in the last nine months — 13 so far. Love the Quilty show and all the little tips here and there. Keep up the good work on the show. Thanks.

Must we wait sooooo long???? It is already a favorite. Can’t wait!

I was beginning to think that another magazine was never going to materialize. I too am anxiously awaiting the next issue. And I fully think we do need this as a subscription. Surely do love it!

Mary, I love watching your Quilty videos and have told all my “wanna-be-quilter” friends about it. Wished you’d of been around when I was learning to quilt years ago. Back then, I’d wake up early to watch Fons and Porter, (love that show too!) on Saturday mornings. It always inspired me to get upstairs to my sewing room and sew! Thanks for making it available for free! Definitely the best part! Love ya in Texas!
