Want to see yourself published?

Made a fab new quilt design?

Have you sewn something you want to share with the world?


Make Modern is a digital quilt magazine with 10-14 patterns in each issue.

Patterns must be original and should not have been previously published elsewhere. Contributing pattern designers receive a copy of the issue containing their pattern and a once-off payment of AU$120-170 (inclusive of GST/local taxes, where applicable). Exclusivity of the pattern remains with Make Modern for two months after the original publication date, after which time designers are welcome to sell or publish their pattern on their own site.

Article Submissions


Written an article that will inspire us?

Want to share your sewing story?


While most of our features and profiles are written in-house, we welcome your thoughts and ideas. If you have any favourite quilters you think we should profile, or discover an amazing new pattern designer or fabric designer you think we need to know about (including yourself, blow your own horn!), please let us know.


If you have any pressing (ha ha) questions about the quilting world, ask us – it may be the start of a fabulous article. If there’s something you want to learn more about, chances are other people are curious too. Or perhaps you have an idea for an article that you would like to write. Get in contact with us and let’s talk!
