On newsstands now

We have been a little slow to update our blog of late but here is what you can find on newsstands currently.


This issue we are giving the sewing machine some loving with a fun sewing machine cover by Cheryl Houghton. There is also some lovely pieced quilts to make from Brenda Gael Smith (on the cover), Jessica Frost and Jane Morgan. We also have Sharon Keightley’s interpretation of the traditional basket block Natashia Curtin’s stunning Seasons quilt. Finally the ladies from The Quilted Crow are back to share more of their expertise in working with felted woven wool as well as a delightful project on which you can hone your skills. Plus Leonie joins us on the accompanying DVD to demonstrate the technique. We catch up with Pam Holland in her studio, Michelle Marvig road tests The Shortcut Binding Tool and Deb Louie looks at how less quilting is actually more.

Quilts For Today

It is only two days until Quilts for Today goes on sale. It features stunning modern quilts from Jane Davidson (QuiltJane), Tracey Petersen, Liz Pinczewski, Faith Jones (fresh Lemons Quilts – also the cover quilt) and Jess Frost (The Elven Garden). The accompanying DVD features a gorgeous joint project by Michelle Marvig and Deborah Louie. Michelle pieced the Woven Plaid top and Deborah machine quilted it. On the DVD they both share their tips on completing the quilt. We also have interviews with leading US modern quilt designers Tula Pink, Thomas Knauer and Lisa Calle and fantastic feature articles on artist trading cards and choosing the right setting for your patchwork blocks.
