Welcome to Make Modern!

Hello quilty friends and welcome!

So this is our first Make Modern blog post - and oh the pressure! An inaugural post! It must be special and extraordinary and amazing and keep the readers coming back! Or perhaps we shall simply go for a blog post that tells you what we're doing and why. Yes. Let's go with that.

Make Modern is new venture of three Aussie quilters. We are passionate about our craft, and want to connect, inspire and enable fellow quilters who feel the same way!

So here we are! With a fabulous magazine on its way (ooh wait til you see what we have lined up!), and the start of a blog that will be filled with resources, quilty help and tips, and pictures of cats on quilts (No, Jane, no.).

We are very excited about this venture and would love to have you involved! So drop us a line, tell us what you'd like to see in a modern quilting magazine, or maybe you have a great idea to share with us for a project or an article! We want to hear it! Quilting! Sewing! Modern! Yay! Let us all unite in our quilty passion and go Make Modern!


  1. Congratulations Kristy, Lara and Jane ! I love the look of your blog and website! And can' t wait to see all of your wonderful ideas to come. I would love to see lots of paper piecing patterns from the new magazine!

  2. I know I'm going to want to be following you all and what you do. Your picture in this post suggests one movement you could take the lead in advancing: that is, to designate peanut M&Ms (or your own favorite flavor) an official quilting/sewing notion. Good luck with the venture!


Thank you so much for your comment! We love to hear from our readers.
