Loving Modern Patchwork

I mentioned a few posts ago that I am fast turning into a "crossover quilter" with all the exposure that I am getting from the quilting editors in my office. Well, I have gotten a look at Modern Patchwork 2012, and I think that I will be definitely trying out one of these vibrant patchwork projects.

Modern Patchwork 2012.

Patchwork seems to me to be so accessible, as it can be incorporated into a variety of projects or used to create one big project like a quilt. Stitch gets its own fair share of patchwork projects, as we like to mix it up with our sewing work. I thought you might be interested in hearing more about what the special issue has to offer:

There are dozens of projects to choose from, but the magazine is neatly organized into five sections: Kitchen & Dining, Quilts, Gifts & Accessories, Bags and Totes, and Home Decor. In the Kitchen & Dining section, I am eyeing the Scrappy Oven Mitt by Kaelin Telschow or Quick & Easy Coasters by Debbie Grifka. In the Quilts section, I wouldn't mind trying my hand at the colorful Summersville Blooms Quilt by Lucie Summers, and in Gifts & Accessories the Cell Phone Case by Mary Claire Allen has caught my eye.

I can never have enough handbags, so the Patchwork Evening Clutch by Amy Ellis in Bags & Totes is a must, and for my home, I can't decide between the Set of Nesting Baskets by Candy Glendening or Modern Mirror by Jane Davila.

In addition to all these fun and modern projects, you'll find lots of informative features about hanging small quilts, spring fabrics, and more.

To get a look at Modern Patchwork 2012, now available for pre-order in the Sew Daily Shop. Have you tried incorporating any patchwork into your sewing projects? Tell us about it and share your work on the Sew Daily blog.

  1. I. Make strip pieced patchwork quilts. It is a good way to use up scraps that you can’t stand to throw away. It is also an excellant way to sew without limits or boundaries.
