We’ve been following the interest in modern quilting for years, and while there are some hallmarks of modern quilting, one of the things we’ve noticed is that naturally quilters want to expand their skills as they become more accomplished. This has meant the traditional slow sewing of English paper piecing has gained popularity, and techniques like applique, FPP and curved piecing are also commonly explored. While most quilters start with piecing basic blocks, it’s natural to want to try out new things, something we avidly support and advocate, even if it means the idea of ‘modern’ gets a bit blurry at times.
In Issue 24, we MEET Krista Moser, Jenny Haynes and the queen of English paper piecing, Florence Knapp. There’s a huge range of projects to MAKE, which use techniques ranging from basic piecing to curves to English paper piecing to applique to foundation paper piecing. We MOTIVATE you to share quilting with your loved ones, meeting families who quilt together.
