About Make Modern

​Make Modern is Australia's only modern quilt magazine. It began in 2014 when a group of passionate quilters had a dream of producing a magazine for quilters, by quilters, filled with beautiful patterns and articles to inspire quilters like us to make more modern quilts! Six years on and Make Modern magazine is read by thousands of quilters in over 70 countries around the globe and we are so proud! 

Our modern quilt magazine is published bi-monthly. Each issue is 100+ pages jam-packed with modern quilt patterns designed by a huge team of international quilters, articles to inspire and teach you something new, and interviews with your favourite quilt designers. Issues are delivered as PDF files, to be read on your computer, tablet or phone, with patterns printed as you wish.
