Quilting through 2014, season by season (+ sale)

Love Blooms quiltLeft: “Love Blooms” by Heather Mulder Peterson, from the eBook Favorite Quilts from Anka’s Treasures—only $11.99 through January 5.

Choices about making a quilt often depend on the inspiration at hand. And there’s arguably nothing that inspires quilters more than the seasons. Each season holds its own magic. Though they feature transformations we’ve witnessed time and time again, they never cease to persuade us to create.

For timing’s sake, it’s best to start a seasonal quilt by anticipating a season’s arrival (case in point: who waited for freezing temperatures before starting those Christmas projects?). In this week’s books on sale, you’ll discover designs to anticipate stitching for all four seasons, plus patterns perfect for year-round display.

With quilt ideas to take you from this December to next—plus a 40% off incentive this week only—you can look forward to filling 2014 with patchwork pleasures!

Here are a few seasonal quilts from each of this week’s sale books.
