No matter how long you’ve been quilting, there’s likely to be something you haven’t tried yet and at MM, we don’t assume you’re a beginner quilter just because you’re drawn to modern fabrics. That’s why we offer plenty of techniques to inspire you to try something new. This issue, there’s no shortage of techniques to try. We have an appliqued beauty, curved piecing, EPP, FPP, selvedge sewing, or the perfect project for off cuts! Regardless of whether your next project uses a new-to you technique or a tried and true staple, we hope you get that rush that comes from cutting up perfectly good fabric so you can sew it back together again.
