Happy 5th Birthday to Make Modern Magazine

One of my goals over the last few years was to publish a quilt pattern in a quilting magazine.  And my favorite quilting magazine is Make Modern so it was very exciting to have Sequence and Briar Rose show up in two of the issues.  And, I've got another quilt that will appear in the November issue.  (No spoiler pictures though!)

Make Modern is turning 5 this month and they are celebrating with a massive giveaway and competition.   To enter, follow Make Modern on Instagram, make any project from any Make Modern issue and then share on Instagram with the #highfivemakemodern tag.

There are over 300 patterns to choose from - find one you like and put your own spin on it.  You can get a sneak peak at all of the patterns in the pattern gallery.

If you don't already own the issue with the pattern you want to make, you can purchase that issue, download it instantly or consider their All Access Subscription and get instant access to every single issue ever published!  Any All Access Subscription purchased during the September celebration will get a free enamel pin.

For my project, I chose to make a cute teapot from the 6 Coffees and a Tea pattern in Make Modern issue 18!  With some pebbling of the background and some hand quilting on the teapot, I've got a new little mini for my wall!
