Issue 30 marks our FIFTH birthday! In Issue 30, we meet three incredible makers – Lauren Wright from Molly and Mama, Saija Kiiskinen who we fell in love with on Insta, and Meghan Buchanan from Then Came June; we make rainbow quilts, pinwheels and the prettiest little project pouch; and we motivate readers to improve their practice with an article on applying Aggregation of Marginal Gains to quilting (intrigued?!), additionally we have our brand new Techniques + Tips column by Alyce Blyth. We discuss the therapeutic benefits of quilting with our feature article, Why is Quilting Good For Us?


Another issue jam-packed with patterns suitable for beginner through to advanced quilters, and articles guaranteed to make you smile, teach you something new, and inspire you to try something new. See below for the full pattern list from our international team of talented makers, a list of feature articles and regular columns, or a sneak peek inside this issue. Our beautiful magazine is published independently by a small team of Australian quilters, and at just AU$8 (approx. US$5.50, CA$7, €5 or £4.50), you can’t afford to miss out.
