MM 19 Project - Sewing Illustrated Pincushions by Minki Kim

Pincushions are one of our favourite go-to quick sewing projects, whether you just want a quick make or you need a gift for a stitchy friend, they're a great idea that never goes astray in the sewing room.

We love Minki Kim of Zeriano's sewing illustration technique of applique, and the sweet motifs on these pincushions, available in Issue 19, are her signature style. All you need is a few scraps to start playing with this fun technique - but be warned, it's addictive!

MM 19 Project - Dakota Prairie Dash by Jessica Roze

We've gone Lone Star quilts on the brain in Issue 19 of Make Modern and I'm getting ready to pull some pretty fabric from my stash and put this beauty together!

We're absolutely besotted by the divine Dakota Prairie Dash quilt by Jessica Roze of Scrappy n Happy. Her use of rainbow prints, grounded with low volumes and black chambray, has resulted in a spectacular quilt.

MM 19 Project - Hexalicious by Liz Dunne

Hexies are sexy - at least if you're a quilter! We adore the look of hexies, but they are a labour of love. Unless you can take shortcuts that give you great results without any hand stitching or y-seams, which is what Liz Dunne of Made In Ireland Quilts has done with her striking quilt project, Hexalicious, available in Issue 19 of Make Modern.
And as a bonus, the expanse of solids is the perfect canvas to showase intricate free motion quilting, which is always a bonus!

MM 19 Project - Mini Wonders Sampler by Sheila Christensen

We're so excited to announce a new sampler project beginning in Issue 19 - we have a gorgeous new sampler that will run over the next six issues, run by the fabulous Sheila Christensen of the Mystery Quilter. Sheila uses clever cutting and piecing techniques, as well as an equilateral triangle ruler, to create intricate hexagon designs in this beautiful table runner.

This sampler will run over six issues and by the end of it, you'll have a great arsenal of hexagon blocks you can use in other projects.  We adore Sheila's fabric choices - a mix of Sun Print and Diving Board from the one and only Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics.

MM 19 Project - Potter's Wheel by Julia Wentzell

Blues are - and probably always will be - a favourite go-to colour scheme for quilters. We adore how Julia Wentzell, the maker of this beautiful Potter's Wheel quilt, combined blue with low volumes for timeless beauty. This quilt is scrappy, but to ensure cohesiveness, Julia used a selection of Cotton + Steel prints, another of our very favourite things!

Julia is half of the fabulous design team Briar Hill Designs, who just launched their first fabric collection, June's Cottage, from RJR Fabrics. Potter's Wheel is the cover quilt for Issue 19 of Make Modern, out now.
