Laurie Baker from Modern Quilts Unlimited joins us on todays episode to share more about being an editor for the magazine. Modern Quilts Unlimited recently changes some things up including bringing on Laurie as the new editor, updating the look of the magazine, and redesigning the website. Laurie wants to reach more modern quilters and has attended various functions to meet more makers. We chat about the redesign of the magazine to give it a fresher look and also Laurie’s quest to find contributors with amazing projects. I know so many listeners would love to submit a project to a magazine so we chat about how you would go about doing that and I have included a link in the show notes. I hope you enjoy the episode.
Hi everyone and welcome to Modern Sewciety and our stop on the Back to School Blog Hop. I really tried to overthink this assignment but when it came down to what I wanted to do I thought about my kids. What is something I could make that would be used a lot and needed for that matter. I happen to be lucky enough to have two beautiful girls with a head full of beautiful hair. So hair bows seemed like the perfect project. Easy and useful.
I thought I would do something different with my weekly newsletter this week. I love sharing my newsletter picks each it is my sunshine to my subscribers. So welcome if you are new here and welcome if you are coming over from your weekly email.
This week has been full of wishy washy for me. I have this gut feeling that I am going in the right direction but where I am going it is fuzzy. These are the things I know lately and get ready because they are random so hang with me.
I am over on the Janome Blog today with my Modern Ditty Bag tutorial. This is a special project for me for many reasons and I am so happy I get to share it today. I gave these two bags to my daughter’s teachers the first day of school to carry when they aren’t in the classroom and they have commented so many times how much they love them. This is an easy project to sew up and such a perfect project to make for someone special.
