29 May Modern quilting magazines!
One of the exciting things about Quilt Market was getting to see a little of some the new modern quilting magazines that are coming out.
I’ve been reading the Generation Q magazine blog for quite a while now. I always enjoy the chatty and informative style about the goings on in our q-niverse as they call it. I picked up a copy of the “hot off the presses” new print magazine at Market. The first thing you notice is its size – smaller than the typical magazine at about 7″ x 9″. I’m not sure why I find the size appealing, but I do 🙂 Inside there are great articles, interviews and quilt projects.
One regular feature that I know I’ll turn to as soon as I get my magazine is called “Block Builder”. Community Editor, Scott Hansen, has sketched a partial block. Finish it any way you like and then submit your version for a chance at a prize. What a fun idea!
You may have noticed quilting stars Amy and David Butler on the cover. Inside there is an interview with the designing couple that provides a peek into their working process and their home. The view from their house would certainly inspire me!
The article reviewing five irons was very helpful and provided concrete information as to which irons performed well and which did not. Of course, there are quilt projects from well known designers such as Scott Hansen, Heather Jones and Julie Herman and much, much more.
Lucky you that I have a copy to give away! If you’d like to win a copy of Generation Q magazine, leave a comment telling me about your favorite part of quilting magazines. Do you like the projects, the interviews, tours of studios, tips on working with scraps or pre-cuts or…..? If you’d like additional chances to win, follow my blog or my Facebook or Twitter (@eschhousequilts) and let me know in a separate comment. The giveaway will remain open until the end of the day on Thursday, May 31.
