Final Day of The Quilt Pattern Magazine Blog Tour – With A Prize and A Special Surprise!

Welcome to the last day of our Blog Tour! Many of you have been following along since the beginning of the month and some of you are new to our Tour.

Newcomers can still go back and view all of the previous blogs by clicking here. Tour regulars can go back and visit any they may have missed.
Be sure to do that today, before it all disappears!

By now, our blog regulars have learned all of the following:

    The Quilt Pattern Magazine debuts tomorrow!
    It is an online only magazine.
    It is environmentally friendly because it saves trees.
    It is a bargain because it provides 5 patterns per issue along with reviews, technique articles, challenges, and more, in 12 issues yearly.
    It introduces you to many new and very talented designers.
    There is no waiting for mail delivery. The magazine will be ready for you on the first of every month.
    There are no shipping costs.
    You can receive it wherever in the world you are.
    All templates are easy to print using our PDF format. There is no overlapping of templates because we do not have space limits.
    Issues will vary in size because we do not need to limit the sizes of designers’ patterns.

The Quilt Pattern Magazine
If you order today, you can still take advantage of our special introductory offer!
A one year subscription is only $11.99 U.S. plus you receive an extra issue free. That is 13 issues for $11.99!

Go ahead right now and subscribe because tomorrow, this special 14% off discount offer will be gone, and the yearly subscription price will include only the usual 12 months.

It is a special honour to have become the editor of The Quilt Pattern Magazine. My days have been filled with new, exciting experiences along with the privilege of meeting and working with many interesting, talented quilters, designers, and writers. It’s been great fun!

Now for the Surprise!

We have created our own social network, which we have named,
Pattern Pastiche! It’s a special place where quilters can get together to discuss all aspects of quilting, celebrate birthdays, join special discussion groups, and discuss the patterns, the magazine and all of its contents by posting messages or chatting or both. Members can post photos of their quilts and create their own blog pages on Pattern Pastiche, which is not at all difficult to do. Many of our designers and writers are members so you can get to know them, ask questions and interact with them. I’m there too, along with our copy editors and The Quilt Pattern Magazine owner.

Come join our friendly, fun, family of quilters at Pattern Pastiche! It’s free for all subscribers!



  1. Rosemary – How is your BOM coming along? Have you joined our Pattern Pastiche and shared photos of each month’s BOM? If not, I hope you do!
    You are going to have a beautiful quilt once all the BOM’s for this Baltimore Album quilt are done!
