In Issue 22, we MEET the very colourful & fabulous Aussie quilter, teacher and multi-award winner Rachaeldaisy from Blue Mountain Quilts, Aussie expat now living in USA with 300+ quilts under her belt Cath Hall from Wombat Quilts, and well-known American quilter Carl Hentsch from 3 Dog Design Co who recently quit his day job to become a fulltime quilter (40+ hours a week!); we MAKE large scale blocks and one block wonder quilts; and we MOTIVATE you to plan a trip to a quilt show, with a wrap up of QuiltCon 2018 and a gallery of the amazing quilts by Aussie quilters that took QuiltCon by storm this year! We talk to Andrea Tsang Jackson about The Here & Elsewhere Bee Quilt, a public, collaborative art quilt exploring immigration in Canada, wave hello to the Chicago Sewing Social, and come clean about our secret (or no so secret) quilty crushes ❤︎ Our math expert Alyce enlightens us on what to do with those 5" x 5" precut darlings of the quilting world that many of us can't help but to stockpile ... charm squares! Our ever-sparkly Agony Aunt Molli Sparkles responds to anxious readers questions about quilt sizes (size does matter!), attending quilt fairs and the eternal debate on whether brown is okay in a quilt or not. And for those of you in the quilt business, our resident The Hustle columnist Angie brings you her top tips on building and marketing to a customer email list. All this, plus 12 stunning modern quilt projects is bound to get you rearing to sew!
