Here at MM HQ we love that possibilities are endless in quilting. We get to explore so many techniques, try so many fabric combinations. You could quilt for 50 years and never make the same quilt twice. As we were sorting through the submissions for this issue’s gallery (p 89), we were in awe of all the different techniques used to create minis around a single theme - they all effectively conveyed the theme of the ocean, but all the quilts are so different and equally amazing. At MM, 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. To celebrate the diversity of quilting, Make Modern Issue 8 contains patterns from one quilt extreme to another - from the perfection that only paper piecing can bring, to the perfectly imperfect that results from improv piecing. See you on the flip side superheroes!
