MM 19 Project - Holly Hot Pads by Katy Devlin

When you're going for the perfect look for the Christmas Day table, it's a nuisance to discover that your day-to-day hot pads are going to totally trash your look! That's why we love this super cute project by Katy Devlin of Lethargic Lass, in Issue 19 of Make Modern.

How genius is this? Katy has created a set of hot pads - holly berries and leaves - that can make your holiday centrepiece, then be moved around the table as required. Nothing like pairing practical and pretty! A great scrap busting project, it also makes a great Christmas hostess gift.

MM 19 Project - Mondrian's Lone Star by Linda Robertus

I've long been fascinated by the work of Piet Mondrian, to limit a colour palette to the simplest or primaries with the addition of black and white is a striking idea with stunning results.
Linda Robertus of Blue Jacaranda Design, who originally hails from the Netherlands like Mondrian, has paid tribute to the work of one of her favourite artists with this spectacular quilt. Linda's design takes the classic Lone Star design and gives it a Mondrian feel with the use of red, yellow and blue diamonds, and black sashing. Fantastic!

MM 19 Project - Christmas Tree Stockings by Capi Cloud Cohen

There is nothing like Christmas time to bring out the desire for traditions - in my house the children receive a new ornament every year, and now they are all teenagers, their individual ornament boxes are stuffed with special memories.

In Issue 19 of Make Modern, we've got a very special pattern - these gorgeous pieced and quilted Christmas Tree Stockings by Capi Cloud Cohen of Sew Cloudy. They are the perfect gift for a special child, or make one for every member of your family.

MM 19 Project - Christmas Crackers by Samantha Green

There's nothing like a brand new Christmas quilt - here in Australia we're not going to be snuggling under it while waiting for Santa, but we still love adding quilts to our decor wherever we can!

We adore this Christmas Crackers quilt by Samantha Green, of For the Love of Fabric, available in Issue 19 of Make Modern. It makes the most of a divine fat quarter bundle, Samantha used Nutcracker II by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller Fabrics. And it's deceptively easy to piece too, so you can whip it up before it's time to put the tree up.

Make Modern Issue 19 Out Now

Sure, it's November, which means we're all starting that panicky "It's nearly Christmas, where's the year gone?" talk - but that doesn't mean there's no time for quilting. Or at the very least, reading about quilting.

It's the perfect time to dive into the latest issue of Make Modern - which is in our subscriber's inboxes now, and available to buy here.

We are absolutely in love with, and itching to stitch up, our cover quilt, Potter's Wheel, by Julia Wentzell. Seriously... how dreamy are these blues?
