Here are a few things happening out there in the world of modern quilting.
Fat Quarterly E-Zine
They launched Issue #8 on January 31st and I bought mine within hours. It’s all about using paper in quilting and The Apple Pie Pillow pattern (pictured below) was too irresistible. Preview some of the patterns here and then place your order here. Also, take a peek at their blog postings over the last few weeks to see work featuring Aurifil threads.
Invisible Quilt Hanging
I have recently started buying fabric online and discovered Marmalade Fabrics via a few other guild members. I was so pleased with my first order, I am waiting for a second parcel to arrive. This past Monday, Tammy of Marmalade Fabrics announced the arrival of Stockholm by Robin Zingone. I know what will be in my third order…
Our secretary Amy has a great blog called Glitter, Vinyl and Thread where she recently did a rundown of several modern quilt-alongs that are happening these days. I’m not jumping into any of them right now, but you might want to, and I did mark several of them for future use. Quilt-alongs are great to try out something new and make some great online friends.
Are there other things happening you think should be on the blog? Let us know and we might include it in our next “scraps” post.
