Make Modern Blog Hop

It's been very quiet around here, but with good reason. I've been spending every spare moment working on this baby, and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you all. 

The very first issue of Make Modern is now out there for the world to see! To be honest, it's a little surreal to see it all together - while I'm not new to having things in print, it's different when you are key in all the decision making and the complete direction of the publication!

It is has been so well received and every kind word makes all the hard work all worth it. We've poured out hearts and souls into this baby, so to have people tell us they enjoyed it and identify with it means the world. Thank you. A million times. 

The first issue is jam-packed with 14 projects, from cushions to table runners to baby and bed quilts. Whether you want to try your hand at curved-piecing or applique, or you're after a quick baby quilt project,there's something in there for you. We're so excited to have so many fabulous contributors from Australia and overseas in this first issue. 

We've also packed the first issue with articles, because we figure you probably like to read about and talk about quilting as much as we do. Whether you need a bit of help getting onto Instagram or sorting your stash, or you want to tweak your tool box and are wondering what to add, we've got you covered. You can also read about some super-talented makers, Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts and Catherine and Vanita of cat&vee.

For those of you who don't know, I'm a little obsessed with selvedges, so my contribution to the first issue was this selvedge quilt, which features a gazillion rainbow hued selvedges on a low-volume background. 

You can find out more about Make Modern, buy the first issue or subscribe over at our website. It's $9.95 for a single issue, $26.95 for a three issue subscription, or $49.95 for six issue subscription.
