Quilting is way more than just stitching up bed coverings – have you ever thought of how the Five Languages of Love – gift giving, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service and physical touch – can be represented in quitling? It’s all there, whether you’re encouraging your quilting friends, making a gift for a new baby, or piecing charity quilts. Of course, quilting is also an act of self love and care as we honour our own need to create. At Make Modern we highly encourage using quilting as a love language and this issue we feature a lovely story of a memory quilt that’s become a family heirloom.

In this issue we MEET quilt superstars, Jeni Baker from In Color Order and Jemina Flendt from Tied With a Ribbon, we MAKE flying geese quilts, prairie points and more, and we MOTIVATE you you to get cutting, taking a look at the tools and techniques you need to make cutting as painless as possible!
