April 12, 2010 - The authors of six blogs popular for their modern sewing and quilting projects have teamed up to launch a new e-zine featuring quilt patterns, interviews with top fabric designers, previews of upcoming modern fabric lines, and more.

Fat Quarterly is a collaboration between Kate Dixon (One Flew Over...), Katy Jones (I'm a Ginger Monkey), Brioni Greenberg (Flossyblossy), Tacha Bruecher (Hanies), Aneela Hoey (Comfortstitching) and John Adams (Quilt Dad).

"With Fat Quarterly, we hope to provide a source of ideas and inspiration for anyone interested in the modern sewing and quilting aesthetic", says Ms. Dixon. "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 when its first issue is available on Tuesday, April 27th. This 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.

Dena said...

I love all the inspiration I get when browsing magazines. Often times, they feature patterns in fabrics I would not have chosen and it encourages me to step outside of my box.

Congratulations on being featured.

I LOVE magazines for the visuals - both ideas and the how-tos. I also love looking at a magazine when there are alternate versions of one idea, it allows my mind to wander into thinking of new ideas!
This eZine sounds like it's going to be really awesome!

I like magazines for the pictures and inspiration.

yarnivorous said...

Oooh, looks exciting! I love mags for the ideas they give me - sometimes I'd never make something in those colours but the idea? If only I had my quilting area set up. I rather like the storybook quilt idea :-)

Little Bluebell (Adrianne) said...

I can't wait for the debut of Fat Quarterly! I love seeing lots of beautiful quilts and how to make them, but I also like artist profiles and "helpful hint" type blurbs.

Meghan said...

I love magazine for the same reason I love reading blogs. I think my favorite part is learning all the different tips and tricks out there. I learn something from every magazine I read.
