Graphic design is a favorite endeavor, but, so is designing quilts. How lucky I am to work for national quilting magazines and combine both my talents. Pear Still Life is one of my favorites and it was a real surprise to get into publication, but luckily McCall’s Quilting has a large pattern page where the pear template could be given to readers. This original pear quilt appears in the May/June 2010 issue.   —Joyce Robinson
