My Quilt on the Cover of Make Modern Magazine

I am over the moon excited to show you my latest quilt – Strength Training. I love the way this quilt turned out. When the people at the magazine told me it was going to be on the cover I couldn’t believe it. My quilt on the cover of a quilt magazine! Wow! This is my first pattern accepted into a magazine which makes it that much more special.

While it may look a bit tricky, this is an easy pattern that shows off your fabric fabrics. The most important thing is to keep organized. I used oranges and yellows from the Island Batik foundations line called Opulent Oranges. You can find out more about the fabrics in the article.

Pick up your copy of the issue here.

Each issue has over 100 pages of quilting gorgeousness! I don’t know about you but I love looking at quilt magazines (especially one with my quilt on the cover). I get inspiration and can dream a little bit about making a new quilt.

Other Versions

I always have to give a huge shout out to my testers because they are so awesome and helpful! Here are their versions. They both look great and show off how flexible this pattern is.

Get the Pattern

If you want to get the pattern for Strength Training plus lots of other patterns and quilting goodness, pick up your copy of this magazine HERE. Even better, subscribe so you get quilting goodness every 2 months!

As I mentioned earlier, this was my first pattern accepted into a quilt magazine. Thank you to Make Modern. They have given me the confidence to send in more patterns and hopefully I’ll get another accepted one day.

    Hello Claudia , I just learned about your quilt in the magazine , which I got from e library in NSW , Australia . I like the pattern , instructions and the colours of the quilt . Also , the possibility to use jelly rolls , that are so so convenient for someone like me – pure beginner , lol . I got an orange pack of jelly rolls that are very bright and the pattern of your quilt will work nicely to calm the orange shades – thank you ! It will be project number 28. I read this site article too and thought it would be good to let you know that it’s already appreciated in the future ( Sydney ) by a quilting student . Best wishes , Mariana
