If you’re anything like us, you probably get a bit antsy or grumpy if you spend too long away from creative pursuits. A night in front of the sewing machine fills your well, scribbling a potential quilt design on a napkin gives you a creative fix. At MM, a rough day is always soothed by equal doses of chocolate and EPP. It always astounds us when people say they aren’t creative. We firmly believe everyone has the innate ability to be creative. We were so excited to get the opportunity to talk to artist, quilter and creativity enabler Carrie Bloomston.

Another issue jam-packed with modern quilt patterns suitable for beginner quilters to advanced, and articles about modern quilting guaranteed to make you smile, inspire you to quilt outside your comfort zone, and start making modern quilts today. Our beautiful patchwork magazine is published independently by our small team of Aussie quilters, and priced at just AU$8 (approx. US$5, CA$7, €5 or £4), so you don't have to miss out!
