Marti Michell Quilts You Can Make

Marti has been using Perfect Patchwork Templates for years. Quilts that Marti has designed and made have been featured in national quilt magazines for many years, especially Better Homes and Gardens "American Patchwork and Quilting" magazine.

Some articles were published before the invention of the templates, others are about using the templates to make specific quilts, and a few are "meet Marti" type articles. If you are a dedicated quilter, you probably have many of these issues in your magazine collection. What you may not have thought of, though, is that you can substitute many of our templates for pattern pieces in almost any quilt magazine! Bookmark this page and visit often to see what new magazines feature quilts waiting to be made the easy, accurate way with From Marti Michell Perfect Patchwork Templates!

Love of Quilting Magazine

Happy 25th anniversary, Fons & Porter! In the July/August 2006 issue, Liz and Marianne reminisce about writing their first book, Classic Quilted Vests, with the only word processor they had, a lead pencil. Our company, Yours Truly, Inc., was proud to publish that book and many other quilting books by first-time authors.
