I used to get a little crochet magazine that had pictures of all the projects on the back cover.
If quilting mags would do this, they would have my business.
I canceled most of my quilt mags because it is just to much to find a pattern in dozens of mags.
I even asked Fons and Porter to put pics on the back cover but never got an answer. They would rather have the advertizing money for the back cover.
