Spring is in the air with fun fabrics and It's a Spring Thing, by Kris Holderness, quilt pattern.

Meander, by Shereece Nicole, could be made with just two colors instead of the three colors shown which affords the quilter some opportunity to play with color.

You have great customer service. I wasn't sure if I was going to keep my subscription BUT I am. - Cathy E (Feb 2020)
I cannot afford to buy magazines anymore and find everything I need in your magazine. Thanks for keeping it affordable !! - Andri V (Jan 2020)
TQPM is the best on line quilting magazine. - Linda Frances B (Oct 2018)
Love this magazine! - Peggy V (Oct 2018)
The articles and instructions are always top-notch and such a great variety, something for every stage of quilting. - Mary S (Aug 2016)
It's great. The magazine is going from strength to strength. :-) Always enjoyable and always love the patterns. - Michele-Marie B (Jun 2016)
Love all the articles, patterns and information that the little magazine gives each month. Although I call it a little magazine, it is packed with information for all quilters from beginner to advanced. I have enjoyed it since the magazine was started and have yet to be disappointed in the information. - Mary S (Jun 2016)
Love the projects. Even though I can't do many of them at this time. You gals are ALL Terrific! - Rita A (Apr 2016)
TQPM is the best - great patterns, great staff and Pattern pastiche is an awesome online guild. - Bonny P (Feb 2016)
I really enjoy TQPM magazine. Instructions are easy to follow and I enjoy the editorial and story pages. It's sort of like welcoming friends into my home. It's also nice that there aren't a lot of advertisements. - Sarah W (Jan 2016)
Love this ebook and have always found great inspiration in your magazine. Much appreciation and thanks to Isobel Meekins for introducing me to TQPM! - Eva B (Jan 2016)
Love, love, love your magazine!! Doing the Rainbow Quilt and it is so much less expensive than going thru a quilt shop! Thank you!!! - Charlotte P (Jan 2016)
I subscribe to TQPM and absolutely LOVE it!!! - Terri D (Apr 2015)
Your magazine is the greatest. I have stopped purchasing other (paper) magazines and just sticking with your digital. Thank you for all the great patterns, techniques, and instructional info. Your staff is the best! - Judy N (Mar 2015)
You have the best magazine online. I only have subscribed to yours because of the quality you present us with. - Betty C (Mar 2015)
I look forward to my TQPM Magazine each month. I never know where to start. - Judy R (Mar 2015)
Number one thing they enjoyed most: Unfair question as there are so many things I love about your magazine. So, the answer is everything. I even enjoy the ads because it allowed me to see the talents of pattern designers that I would otherwise miss. There are so many large publishers and I subscribe to just about all of them, I know I'm a quilting hog; but The Quilt Pattern Magazine can hold its own with any of them. - Betty G (Feb 2015)
I enjoy your magazine for all the inspirations and great patterns. Keep up the good work! Judi B (Dec 2014)

Your staff is all so great. It is so nice to be a part of a group with all the same interests. It's like we've known each other and been friends for years. Thanks so much for all that you do. I just think you all are so very helpful and you all give so much of your time freely to help others. Hugs, Sandie S. (Nov 2014)

Just want to thank everyone who made the retreat and the virtual retreat possible. I've never taken time to mix with a group online and it was really fun reading all the comments and participating. A lot of personality came through and I got some good laughs. I have my quilt sections ready to put into blocks tomorrow at my friendship group. Looking forward to posting it when it's finished. Midge M (Oct 2014)



So nice you gals were able to have a retreat and we were able to have a Virtual Retreat with you. Although I didn't work along with you this year, I am really looking forward to doing this next year. Love the quilt you all did and have the pattern and will make one soon. Enjoyed all the pictures. Thanks to the gals that organized it all and those that donated the prizes. That was really nice. Thanks for letting me be apart of it all. I feel like I've gotten to know many of you. - Rosemary M (Oct 2014)
I finally found time to post some pictures of my quilt top. One is the full size and the other two are close-ups. I had a lot of fun making this quilt, not only because I like the way it turned out, but also that I was lucky enough to win a great prize. Mostly I enjoyed it because of all the fun I've had reading all the posts and taking part in a few of the chat times. All in all a huge success! Thanks again to all who worked so hard to make this happen! - Connie A (Oct 2014)

This Virtual Retreat (VR) has been a lot of fun. Met many new people and got to chat with ones I already knew. Wonderful pattern Isobel! Thank you so much. A special thank you to all the sponsors for their generosity. Looking forward to receiving my prize from Purrfect Spots. Love the look of the pattern I won. Cindy, you have a ton on your plate and you still found the time to be here and give out all those lovely prizes. Thank you for ALL you do. There were so many people involved that made this all possible. Thank you to all the staff at TQPM. All your work is truly appreciated by everyone. The biggest thank you has to go out to all the quilters in the VR and the ones that had the opportunity to attend the Capon Springs Retreat. Without all of you, there would have been no VR or Retreat. It is your love of quilting that made this all possible. We will have lots of eye candy to look at and remember the fun we had sewing Buttoned Up and the many other projects. Isobel, you did it! You pulled it off and attended 2 retreats at the same time (VR and Capon). You really are a miracle-worker. This was my first VR and I had a blast. - Joanne M (Oct 2014)

I won a door prize. Thank you so very much. I'm sure I'll be making several of these for gifts. And thank you to Purrfect Spots for the wonderful door prizes. A big thank you to Isobel and all the TQPM folks that worked so hard to put this retreat together. I sure hope they'll be a #2 and that I can attend in person. Thanks to all the folks at Capon Springs. It's a beautiful place! Judy N (Oct 2014)
Thank you organizers for a great retreat. As Carol said, I think doing this in conjunction with an actual retreat was a marvellous idea and I am looking forward to (please) future ones. - Anna B Read about the retreat on Anna's blog. (Oct 2014)

Thank you so much for my prize. Maria's placemat pattern is going to be well used and in time for Xmas gifts. I enjoyed the virtual retreat so much and am working on my blocks today. I know everyone worked hard to make it a success. This was the first time I've joined in anything like this and it was a nice experience. I don't know how many virtual quilters attended but it must have been lots. I have a lot of catching up to do to post my quilt top. Thanks again for making the retreat possible. Midge M (Oct 2014)

Number one thing they enjoyed most: The feeling of being part of a family of quilters. There is just something about the magazine that makes me feel like it is just a very long letter from many friends talking about quilting. Even the ads are pleasant; can't say that about any other magazine I subscribe to. I look forward to each new issue. It is like hearing from friends with new ideas. - Betty G (Oct 2014)
Thank you so much for the link for my lost issues. Great customer service and great publication. I just renewed, even though early, so I don't forget and miss out on any of your greatness. - Terje G (Oct 2014)
I love the closeness that is found on TQPM. The Mystery Quilts, only one at a time from now on. ROFL. You all work so hard to make it fun. Thank You! - Rita A (Oct 2014)
I wanted to send a quick note to say CONGRATULATIONS on a couple more outstanding issues of TQPM. Really enjoyed both issues! The article about Applique Overlay was very timely for me! THANK YOU! - Annie (Sep 2014)
Thanks again Cindy. Love this online magazine. So glad I ran across it one day. I am completely hooked. Want to do every project in them (as you can tell by my needing back issues).You and your staff are to be commended on doing such a great job - and at such a low price - and be able to access issues forever on our computer. WOW! Great job! Kudos to all! - Judy (Sep 2014)
I do hate gushing, but each issue just makes me want to run to my sewing machine and my fabric. The patterns are wonderful, the articles are always interesting and helpful and the BOM; well words don't begin to do them justice. Thank you for all of your hard work. Please know that this subscriber loves each and every one. Now I must run and check my stash for Grecian Stars. That one is going to be super fun. - Betty G (Sep 2014)
Thank you for activating my subscription. What a fantastic magazine! So very glad I decided to splurge yesterday as this magazine is inspirational and amazing "eye candy". Have a wonderful day and thank you again. - Susan B (Aug 2014)

This online magazine with full, printer-friendly patterns is the most perfect 21st Century quilters’ magazine with many patterns and great techniques taught . . . and it is monthly besides . . . and under $17.00. From Quilt Shops I paid double that for each of 2 patterns recently . . . Both I could have made from these magazine issues for no extra charge over the yearly subscription price. I have access to all the issues forever in a file on my computer . . . I can read the magazine for fabric needs when at a shop right from my phone, too. How perfect is that ?!! - Toni N (Aug 2014)

I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to subscribe. Your magazine is wonderful. The new BOM by Sindy Rodemayer is gorgeous, but then I'm a admirer of hers for a long time. Thank you for a quality publication and I look forward to many great hours of quilting. - Elizabeth G (Jun 2014)
I don't think I could make it through the month if I didn't have the magazine to look forward to each month. :) - Bonni F (Apr 2014)
I want to thank Cindy again for the above-and-beyond service she gave me! What patience! This group is THE best! - Claire C (Mar 2014)
As the years pass, I so look forward to each month and a new edition of TQPM. The story that Karen is writing signifies times that were much harder for men and women but the story takes me back to happy times when I was a little girl. Your magazine makes me feel warm inside which is contentment for me. Keep up the good work. Susan S (Feb 2014)
I would like to say how much I like your magazine and the contents. I like being able to go back to it and it is easy on the eyes to read. I am no expert quilter but I can understand what is being said. Ann H (Jan 2014)
I'm not a writer for the magazine but am a subscriber and just wanted to jump in and say that there isn't another magazine that packs so many patterns into one magazine. If you decide to subscribe it's a GREAT price and you'll find they are approachable and willing to answer any questions you have about the patterns, etc. Bonni F (Nov 2013)
Love the magazine and the May issue is full of so many full-sized quilt patterns! Thank You. I feel that any one of your issues is worth the yearly subscription price. Toni N (Jun 2013)
I didn't know anything about TQPM until Linda Franz mentioned it in her Inklingo blog. Since I frequently enter the ClubEQ Challenge, I was lucky enough to receive a trial subscription by participating in this month's challenge. I have only had a chance to glance at the issues I have downloaded but am impressed with what I have seen so far. I am sure I will enjoy my trial subscription and, more than likely, will subscribe when it runs out. Thank you. Beth B (May 2013)
I really love your magazine and the hands on that you take. I want to thank Cindy who personally called me when I could not get into Pattern Pastiche. Catherine J (Apr 2013)
Thank you so much! I travel all over the world in my work, and am on the "road" every week to some place on our "globe", so I am sooo happy to have this wonderful on-line quilt magazine "with me" at all times! Carrie B (Jan 2013)
What a fabulous issue August is. The making freehand curvy cut for a border is something that I really want to try and the instructions are wonderful. I've had a desire to learn to make a Celtic design quilt and what a wonderful surprise to see a pattern with great instructions. And finally the Dancing Man is such a fun pattern to use up my Halloween fabric from my stash ... and all this for $1.25 ... what a "steal of a deal" to be a subscriber. Susan D (Sep 2012)
I can print as much or as little as I need, want and save the rest for later. I love the fact that it is "green" friendly. I have already decided that I will not be renewing subscriptions to other quilt magazines. Most now offer the magazines on a disk at the end of the year and I will wait until then to see if I want to buy the disk. This One Magazine I will be renewing!! Deborah M (Aug 2012)
Thank you. It is pleasantly surprising and fun with the little extras you throw in. Thank you again. I love the magazine. It has something for everyone and I love the diversity of the patterns. Thank you again. Susan H (Jul 2012)
Love the first day of the month so I can read the new publication. Keep up the good work. Susan D (Feb 2012)
Can't wait for the next month to get here so I can see what is new and exciting. Let me also thank you for the article on color - being a somewhat beginning quilter that is always my first concern - what is hue, value etc from color to color. Your magazine is OUTSTANDING. I hope to enjoy many years to come your magazines. Mary S (Feb 2012)
I like the fact that this is online. It makes it so much easier to print the patterns I like and will use, and I don't have to worry about a lot of storage space. Deborah M (Jan 2012)
I love the fact that you go into such detail, giving helpful hints along the way for each of the projects you have in the various issues. I also enjoy the variety of articles, from simple to complex, to help with any level of quilting. Please keep up the excellent work you have done on this magazine, I open your newsletters the minute it appears in my email box. Thank you so much. Mary S (Dec 2011)
Thank you. I think it is obvious I love this magazine! I'm so glad I found it!! - Mary T (2011)
The magazine is like a fine wine, it gets better with age. Keep up the good work!! - Susan D (2011)
Hey what a great issue. You guys really outdid yourselves. Love this Mag!!! - Mary H (2011)
This is my first experience with a digital magazine too. At first I wasn't too sure because I like to "feel" my mags as I read them just as much as I like to touch my fabrics but I am thoroughly enjoying this magazine....heck, I can reach out and touch the screen..... It has been so full of information and the patterns are fabulous. Keep the issues coming. Thanks to Cindy for giving this to us. - Linda F (2011)
I have cut and made sheets before but always had the paper curl and it was difficult. I have just tried this method and love it. I will make a stack and have them on hand. Many thanks. It is a great magazine and perhaps a comments page would be good. (Reference to Freezer Paper Foundation Piecing in the June issue) - Jane L (2011)
I love getting my Quilt Pattern Magazine online so I can keep what I want and catalogue those items and then know where they are when it is time to use them. This is much better than having all those magazines hanging around and you don't know where that pattern is!! - Linda R (2011)
I wish I could just send flowers to you both for the wonderful magazine. It's a great magazine and so well done. I'm happy to be a future part of it! - Alice W (2011)
AWESOME. So glad to be apart in my little small way. - Sheree L (2011)
Awesome job! I love the magazine. It's so cool to have it online. Thanks again for the great opportunity to be in the inaugural issue. What an honor! I look forward to submitting more designs to you in the future. - Deanne E (2011)
What a wonderful job you have done with the new magazine. It all looks so professional. Super job! - Margaret B (2011)
Wowee! I'm impressed. TQPM is tons more than I ever expected. A first class act, group. And I'm now contacting all my fellow quilties to tell them this is truly the crème de la crème! Thanks so much. I have now only to decide which project is first. - Jo B (2011)
Rubbing hands together and dancing the "can't wait" dance ... Thank you! - Nancy P (2011)
I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful start of my new year with the article in the magazine!!!!! I have studied it over and over and just absolutely am proud as a peacock about this accomplishment the two of you have helped me achieve! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!! I absolutely love the entire magazine! - Scott B (2011)
Thank you so much! I love the magazine and the great patterns! - Martina S (2011)
I can hardly wait to browse through and start a project. I'm amazed at all the extra bonuses to this online magazine. To be able to chat and get advice or tips on our quilting projects is terrific. You say that we can even share pictures of our projects. Thanks sew much. - Donna C (2011)
The magazine is awesome. I love that heart quilt especially, but the whole magazine is wonderful. - Micki B (2011)
I just wanted to let you know I had time yesterday to review my "NEW" magazine and it is awesome. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity of purchasing a new type of magazine. The patterns are wonderful and so are the articles. Again thanks for all your hard work to put this together. - Lisa A (2011)
