More About This Issue

Few things are as universal and timeless as needle and thread, but these days it’s not critical to know how to sew or quilt because we can buy warmth for our families in a store (debatable, I’m sure!). However, for quilters it’s an essential part of our being – and we all know that handmade warmth, with love sewn in, is better! Another wonderful side effect of being a quilter is the automatic camaraderie that comes when you meet another quilter, regardless of where they’re from. The world is now more connected than ever – it doesn’t matter where you live, you can access an infinite amount of information about quilting and chat with quilters all over the world. For us, the digital world has enabled us to work remotely long before working from home and Zoom calls were the norm. The Make Modern team is spread across all corners of Australia, and our contributors come from all over the world. Our subscribers live in over 70 different countries! Take a close look at our pages and you might notice a little change from this issue onwards as we embrace the globalisation of our contributors.

In this issue we MEET three makers – Carole Lyles Shaw from USA, Donna Ward from New Zealand and Cait Lisle from England; we MAKE that stunning curvy cover quilt from Germany, a Bear Paw quilt from Jersey near France (I’ll admit I had to look this country up!), the cutest little bird pouch from Russia, as well as quilts from India, Ireland, and the USA!; and we MOTIVATE readers to dive into their fabric stashes to create a rainbow and learn about colour theory with a brand new six-part series on Colour Theory! We bring you tips and tricks for making flying geese, discuss modern quilt design, revivals in the fabric world, quilting plans for samplers and other traditional quilts, and continue with our series on Healthy Quilting with magic to avoiding neck pain. Happy quilting, wherever you are in the world!

Make Modern is a digital modern quilt magazine available worldwide. Each magazine is 100+ pages long, jam-packed with modern quilt patterns suitable for beginner quilters to advanced, and articles about modern quilting guaranteed to make you smile, inspire you to quilt outside your comfort zone, and start making modern quilts today. Our beautiful patchwork magazine is published independently by a team of quilters and delivered as a PDF to read on your computer, tablet, or phone, easy to take when you go fabric shopping, with the option to print if you prefer a paper copy.

What People Are Saying About Make Modern

This is a great magazine and there are now loads more items on my "I'm going to make this one day" list. There is also a lot of excellent "how to.." advice.

Super customer friendly subscription service and so completely worth it. This is a source and resource, continual inspiration that will keep your mind creating beyond the norm for years to come. Opening each new issue is like giving yourself a modern, quilted gamut of color burst imagination. Can't recommend it enough!

Really enjoyed this magazine. Layout makes sense to me, and some very doable patterns for all levels, and photography is a treat. 😉🇨🇦

I like the modern take on old blocks, the bright colours used to display the designs used. The reading is interesting and informative and I generally get great ideas for my own quilting journey.

Thank you for the copy of Issue 33. I enjoy your quilts.

I am loving this magazine. Lots of good articles and beautiful quilts. I have found a lot of help from the tips and tricks from other quilt makers. Check them out.

beautiful magazine with excellent articles and easy to follow patterns to make amazing quilts.
The whole team does a fantastic job and the magazine often has very good competitions.
an app would be excellent to keep all copies in one place but this still works well enough.

I love this magazine for the following:
-ease of access. I can download to my I pad and read it at my leisure and tag patterns I want to make
-basic skill tutorials
-great patterns at various skill levels
- final and my favorite is that it is International. It includes quilters from all over the world.

Love the inspiration and explanations offered in this magazine! As someone who’s looking to move beyond beginner quilts, the great detail but often simple instructions are a godsend for me. Plus the amazing designs and maker stories offer such insight that my “to make list” is growing with each edition. I don’t get to lessons very often, so this... is such a fabulous ongoing resource for me, with lots of “ah, so that’s how you do it!” moments while reading. Keep it coming more
