I recently got my hands on issue 2 of Simply Moderne magazine, this is the new quarterly mag from the people behind Quiltmania. I wrote about issue 1 here.
As in the first issue, the mag is divided between articles about quilts and quilters and a number of0 projects. This issue has a large feature about the Australian Modern Quilt Show, with lots of beautiful photos of the quilts.
And an excellent article all about my lovely friend Lorena! I was so happy to see her smiling face and read all about her. There are articles about a few prominent Aussie Quilters and many photos of stunning quilts from the show.
Do you recognise this quilt? It was one of the standout exhibits at QuiltCon and a particluar favourite of mine, so I was very pleased to find a project for it here. Lovely styling too.
Love this wall pocket organiser!
And the cover quilt is just gorgeous!
They always have a large section of applique projects which I completely approve of. Love this quilt!
As soon as I saw this beautiful needle-turn applique I wanted to rush off and do some myself.
Which is a good job as I had some to add as finishing touches to my Improv Meadow quilt!
This is the quilt I started at Anna Maria Horner's amazing Mod Corsage workshop that I took at QuiltCon earlier in the year. I wrote about it in this earlier post.
I have been working on it in odd moments, and am now racing to finish it in time to enter it for QuiltCon 2016.
It is quilted with a mixture of FMQ and hand quilting with perle cottons. I am just adding the hand quilting now. Here are some sneak peeks but look out for a big reveal in a week or two!
And don't forget to check out Simply Moderne if you want a really interesting read (still charmingly French sounding even though it is all in English!) and some fantastic projects! More info and subscriptions available here.
