Have you heard about Fat Quarterly yet? It’s a brand new modern sewing and quilting e-magazine and from the the sneak peeks I’ve seen, it looks like it’s going to quickly become a favorite of mine. Patchwork & quilting patterns, new fabrics, interviews with your favorite fabric designers… what more could you ask for?
Fat Quarterly is a collaboration between six fabulously talented bloggers (you can read more information about each of them here). According to Kate, “With Fat Quarterly, we hope to provide a source of ideas and inspiration for anyone interested in the modern sewing and quilting aesthetic. We have assembled a truly global team with diverse skills and styles, but connected by a love of handmade items and of sharing the joys of creating with others.”
Fat Quarterly will officially launch on Tuesday, April 27th. The introductory issue will be packed with exciting and original content including six brand new patterns for modern quilts and other sewing projects, designer interviews and previews of six upcoming fabric lines, book reviews, a report from the British Quilts exhibit at the Victoria & Albert museum, amazing giveaways of some of the fabric and books featured in the magazine, and much, much more.
