Welcome to November! In Arkansas, the air is cooler, the leaves are still falling, and the holiday season is fast approaching. It’s forever been a month of activity for me. Back when my children were teenagers, we said goodbye to fall soccer and hello to basketball. The transition from one sport to another continues to signify to me that the holidays will be here before I know it, and that translates to my having my holiday projects finished. Well, they all might not be “finished” but at least will be well on their way.

Each Thanksgiving for the past thirty-plus years, the grandchildren in my family gather at my mother’s house to decorate a little house as part of her holiday decorations. My father fashioned the house’s foundation from plywood to make it more durable for the season. Its frosting holds it firmly together. Decorating it is a labor of love for Mother and a time of glee for the children. The little house looks quite different each year in large part due to the age and expertise of the artists decorating it. All the same, memories are made in the doing.

Quilting projects are very similar. Many times, I find myself returning to a familiar block with a new colorway or technique while in others I am anxious to try something new. And with each turn, I learn and strengthen my quilting experience. This month’s magazine provides you with the opportunity for both. Whatever you find yourself working on, I hope it provides a fun memory for you much like the one my family receives in decorating that little house.
