It’s no secret that the MM crew has a waste-not-want-not philosophy that definitely extends to fabric – most specifically selvedges (AKA selvages in the USA). The trend to print bright, bold selvedges with different fonts and patterns has led to a rise in modern selvage quilting. Our Jane is a huge fan, so she’s written a comprehensive article to get you started on finding your selvedge sewjo, and created a great beginners modern selvage quilting project that will make the most of your cutest selvedges.
In this issue (where you’ll discover our brand new look), we MEET Stephanie Palmer and Gina Ferraro. We MAKE a great range of gorgeous projects, whether you love EPP, FPP, pixel quilting, low volumes or oversized piecing. We MOTIVATE you to get worldly by exploring quilting in Japan, give the low down on basic sewing machine maintenance, and get you looking at those selvedges (they’re not rubbish!!) in a whole new light.
