Make Modern Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Make Modern Magazine Blog Hop!

Make Modern

This little quilter is quite chuffed to be rubbing (virtual) shoulders with the amazing designers featured and I have been soaking up inspiration from each and every page!

Here's a little preview of my quilt ... you can find all the pattern details, fabric requirements and a few tips on sewing 3D Pinwheels in Issue 1.

Look at all that scrap busting potential in those pinwheels!

Have you tried 3D Pinwheels before?  They are really not that scary ... 'Quilter's Promise' ... and they'll add a lot of extra dimension (obviously) to your quilts ... or pillows ... or ... (addiction disclaimer).

At the end of the day, we quilters just like to make things for the people we love and care about and my baby quilt pattern was designed to do just that ... 

To snuggle and comfort

... and once I've trapped you in my 3D Pinwheel honey pot ... click here to go and get yourself a copy ... or the next six!

I've enjoyed flicking through the pages so far and have quite a few projects dog-eared to make ... if you've already made something please let us know ... on IG you can hashtag #makemodern or if you prefer you can email the team ... they would love to hear from you and see your projects.

  1. Well done, Serena!
    Hmm. I don't remember seeing the back pictured in the magazine. I love the fabric you chose!

  2. This is darling! I have never seen pinwheels like this. I will have to add it to my bucket list. :)

  3. Love your pinwheels and the srappiness of them. So verstile - wouldn't they be cool on a quilt as you go Tote bag too?

  4. Love the scrappy and deminsional pinwheels, Serena!

  5. Such a lovely project - so glad to have it in our first issue!

  6. Your quilt is lovely and do like that scrap potential. I like the projects in MM but somehow I feel a bit overhelmed so I don't want to add anything to my list at the moment. I might always change my mind, right.

  7. It's fabulous! Congratulations on being published!
