Make Modern Online Magazine

Make Modern Online Quilting Magazine

A great opportunity to be “green” and get a fabulous quilting magazine. It comes online to your inbox and you can look at it whenever you like. This modern quilting magazine comes to us from Australia and the gals that put it together are amazingly creative. Fun projects in each addition. And why yes, I am an affilitate because I think this magazine is so spectacular. I only promote what I think is pretty cool. So if you get a moment, head over to their website and check out MAKE MODERN magazine!

And remember, their pricing is quoted in Australian dollars, so check out the conversion rate to US dollars and you’ll probably find instead of $40 per year subscription, it’s really $28 per year US dollars (see note below from their website).

Happy new year! And happy quilting!

Make Modern Magazine

This is a wonderful digital magazine I have been reading for about a year. It comes from some fun quilters in Australia and I love the vibe they have. And it’s digital so you can take it anywhere.

Extra bonus: no recycling to worry about! And now that I work in Waste Management at the County I live in, that really works for me.

Make It Yourself Magazine

My projects start on page 53!

Check out the latest issue of Make It Yourself Magazine!

This is the result of another project collaboration with Sheila Sinclair Snyder. She is so creative and fun to work with! Whenever we have the opportunity to work (or is it play?) together, something wonderful always comes from it. Thank you for that Sheila!

Last year we did some up-cycled sweater projects for this magazine, and now they are featuring some of our coiled projects in this Fall/Winter issue of Make It Yourself! Starting on page 53 you will see some fabulous small projects to make. Use your leftover sweaters or your leftover cotton strips….either can work and it’s really fun. And the best part? They can be done really quickly! So if you are needing to make some holiday gifts this year, these won’t break the bank, nor do they take much time. And they are oh so fun!

I found the magazine at my local JoAnn’s, but you can also order them online too. Oh, and there are “other” totally cool projects in this issue….so enjoy!

Happy quilting!
