Here at MM HQ we love that possibilities are endless in quilting. We get to explore so many techniques and try so many fabric combinations. We may focus on the modern side of quilting, but we believe that it’s so important to embrace, respect and appreciate all forms of quilting. We live in a golden age of quilting, with a myriad of tools and conveniences like precut fabric, yet we are still tied to tradition.

Get MOTIVATED to brush up on your binding skills and learn the basics of English paper piecing. Discover how important proper pressing is in the finish of your quilt tops. MAKE perfect applique with freezer paper, try some precut fabric friendly quilt patterns, stitch up brilliant patchwork quilts, or make super cute pouches and accessories. MEET Australian quilter and fabric designer, Keera Job, and American quilters Jessica Vetor and Lori Hartman. Visit the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Nebraska, USA.
