When first discovering quilting a quilter might think that they’re only going to make a quilt for each bed in their house, maybe for a baby gift or two. A seasoned quilter will tell you, once you get the quilting bug you will not be able to stop creating quilts. Friends and family members might start asking, “what are your plans with all of these quilts you’re making?” You might even start questioning yourself about how you’re going to incorporate all of these quilts into your home.
In Issue 4 of Modish Quilter we dive into the many ways to use quilts both aesthetically and functionally in your home. This issue is packed with inspiring ideas and projects to show off your creative side and add more of your personality to your space. After incorporating some of these fresh ideas into your home no one will be asking why you’re making more quilts. Your aesthetic will speak for itself. You don’t have to take just our word for it either. Original pioneer for the online quilting industry, Pat Sloan, shares her favorite ways to incorporate quilts in her home throughout the year, among other advice in her interview with Modish Quilter.

New to sewing curves, but always wanted to give it a try? The Modish Quilter Original pattern, Memo Quilt, incorporates a gentle curve that would be friendly for beginners. This pattern would also be great for incorporating your favorite larger scale prints.
Feeling a little more confident in your curves piecing skills, but want to expand your curves piecing tool kit? The Rainbow Mini Quilt by Casey Cometti of Wellspring Designs Co incorporates both whole and half inset circles. Don’t worry though. Casey has created resources to walk you through the process with confidence.
Not only is this mini quilt beautiful as a hanging decor for your home, but it was also designed with a beautiful meaning behind it. This design is meant to celebrate a rainbow baby that is born after loss. The circle represents the lost little ones looking down from under the rainbow on the new baby cradled below. The subtle design is meant to maintain privacy by offering a commemorative piece without advertising grief.
The latest issue of Modish Quilter not only brings amazing quilt patterns, but tutorials for creating aesthetically pleasing and functional seating that even your children or pets will love. These Floor Poufs have us dreaming of cool Fall evenings resting with our toes near the fire while reading a good book, or working on our latest hand sewing project.
Amy Schelle of Sewn Handmade designed this stunning, modern and geometric quilt pattern, the Roofline Quilt. This pattern offers a great opportunity to play with colors and gradients. And although it may look like a tricky pattern- it’s not! Easy pattern and show stopping design!
