Can’t keep it a secret any more: Make Modern Magazine

Sandy and I have been working on several exciting projects in the background and now it’s time to let everyone in on one of our secrets. Are you ready?

We are thrilled to announce that Make Modern Magazine will publish one of our quilt patterns!

Make Modern is a digital quilting magazine that features modern quilts and patterns  from many different quilt designers. Take a look at their pattern gallery for some really amazing designs and follow them on Instagram.

Issue 29 of the magazine will be published on July 12th and Cindy’s Girl’s Best Friend quilt pattern will be one of the featured designs.  Here’s a sneak preview:

Sandy and I had a lot of fun taking pictures of this quilt around the farm last fall.  We hung it from trees, draped it over tractors, hung it on mom’s clothes line, taped it to the barn…you name it, we tried it!  Following the advice of other quilt photographers, we took our best pictures on a cloudy day.

In addition to our photography adventures, it’s been a fun to meet and work with Kristy, Jane and Lara throughout the publication planning process. 

It’s gift-away time

To celebrate our first publication as quilt designers, the Make Modern team is providing us with a FREE 6-month subscription to Make Modern Magazine to bestow on one of our readers.

All you have to do to enter the drawing for a free 6-month subscription is be a follower of our blog and leave a comment before July 6, 2019 at 11:59 pm EST (Eastern Standard Time). 

Thank you for helping us celebrate our publication debut!

      The nice part about this quilt is the colors can easily be changed. We were thinking about a blue border but opted for pink.
