Twisted Path is in Make Modern

 Wow, I didn't realize it was so long since my last post. I've been doing this that and nothing at all. I did do some secret sewing and today I get to show you one of those secret sewing quilts.

I am pleased to introduce you to Twisted Path, which is in the current issue #43 of Make Modern Magazine.

The inspiration behind this design was Covid and how our lives have twisted together at times and apart at others. My hope is that we can get Covid under control and return to the times of togetherness. I FMQed some feathers and swirls in the negative space. Some vines and leaves in the tans and browns The quilting was all done on my domestic machine.

A closer shot of the quilting

 Here is a summary of what is available in Issue 43 which begins with the Editor telling an age-old tale of coffee, blue jeans, and too many WIPs - the overwhelm of which is paralyzing her desire to quilt. Jane shares a recent epiphany that has resulted in her tackling some of her oldest unfinished projects, and she shares tips to help us whip our own WIP list into shape ready for the new year.

 Issue 43 is a fabulous collection of modern quilt patterns and projects to fill your creative cup – we MAKE quick quilts and cushions which would make great gifts, a modern applique quilt, a postage stamp quilt, and something a little trickier for those of us who like a challenge. There’s also a handy project travel bag to hold your quilt blocks flat and notions to quilt on the go. We MEET makers Troy Murrah who makes quilts from wood, Sharon Burgess from Lilabelle Lane, and Annie Hudnut. Our regular columnists discuss making plans, fabric substrates, HSTs, and we chat with Jess Zeigler of The Longarm League. We focus on Sewing Room Ergonomics and how you can make quilting less of a pain in the neck! And we MOTIVATE you to try fussy cutting with tips from Ange Wilson and a whole gallery of fussy cut inspiration.
