French Quilting Magazines


My hubby was on a business trip and look what he brought back from France for me! Three French quilting magazines! He said that he looked for a quilt shop but had no luck. By the time he was free each day most of the stores were closed anyway, so I couldn't give him a hard time about it. He did find a place that carried magazines and brought these back for me. Oooooooooo some of the treasures in them! The Ewa Patch magazine not only has quilting projects but tourism information and recipies. Hubby has informed me that there is an internet site that I can type in the French sentences and have the English translations pop up. Neat! Many of the quilt projects I can make from looking at the pictures and drawings, but I would like to know what some of the articles have to say. I am glad to have hubby home and glad to have the French magazines!

Your DH did a great job! Enjoy those magazines...QuiltMania is a really nice one. I've never seen the other two, but I'm sure that they are worth a leisurely look with a cup of tea!

QuiltMania is wonderful! You can get it in english too. I just got a subscription that started in January. You can order from their web site http://www.quiltmania.com
or from a form in the magazine. I think it tends to cost less if you order from the form in the magazine.
