Quilters come from all over the globe, with varying levels of experience and different areas of expertise. We come to quilting down different paths, for different reasons. But whether we've made 5 quilts or 500, we all identify as quilters. We are a diverse group and in this issue we celebrate that! MEET Augusto Garcia, a Spanish man who came to quilting with the pandemic; Geraldine Wilkins, a Black American woman who has been teaching for over a decade; and Kelli Marshall, who balances her quilting business with raising five children.

We MAKE that show-stopping cover quilt with clever curved piecing, a gorgeous rainbow baby quilt, a jelly roll lap quilt and more beautiful modern quilt projects designed to get you diving into your stash to quilt. We chat about fussy cutting EPP, scale and proportion, drawing your quilt plan, improv piecing and show you ways to use your stash for ‘not just quilts’! We MOTIVATE you to spread your love of quilting to the next generation with our new series on Sewing with Kids. And read our Editor’s letter for tips on how to spot a quilter in the wild.
