There's a new kid on the block in the little world of modern quilting. Quilt Now has arrived from the UK and we're excited to bring it to you!
Many of you know Katy Jones. We love Katy Jones. Maybe you haven't noticed just how much we love Katy Jones (it's a lot). As editor in chief, this magazine is truly her baby and as lovely as she is. If you're a fan of hers, read her blog, follow her Instagram or Twitter, you probably like many of the same things she does. So basically, if you like what she likes, you'll love the magazine.
Everything published in Quilt Now is commissioned specifically for the magazine and is approved by Katy's artful eye. Full of quilts, bags, and other handmade goodies, she understands what modern quilters are really doing because she is a modern quilter! Each issue will feature a theme or common color palette, and projects from one month to the next will be completely fresh and different from the previous issue.
The first issue is sorbet themed. You'll notice beautiful, creamy pastels as well as punchy bright hues in the fabrics used to make tons of gorgeous projects. You'll be itching to start-- because who doesn't need more projects to work on?
If you love the color palette in this first issue, you might want to check out the coordinating blogger bundle she put together just for us! Feel free to pick one up here.
Quilt Now also comes with bonus pattern pieces, printed on separate paper. So no more sacrificing pages or photo copying to get your pattern. Katy handled it all for you. She even threw in a mini pin cushion project with supplies included. She's really too kind.
You can subscribe to Quilt Now through us and as of now, we are the only US distributor for the magazine. Don't worry, we're happy to ship internationally as well, just like we do with our fabric and other goodies. If you're not ready to commit and sign up for a subscription, we now have individual issues listed for sale.
While we don't know what next month has in store for us, Katy's posted some previews for a gorgeous quilt pattern shown two ways (and one of them is all Cotton + Steel). If you haven't subscribed yet, make sure you're on board before the August issue is here in a few weeks!
