New Issue: Quiltmaker January/February ’17

Our January/February 2017 issue of Quiltmaker is now available on newsstands and in our online shop! This new edition includes 12 patterns for quilters of all skill levels.

The cover quilt is Aurora Borealis, an eye-catching star quilt designed by Susie Ledadom. This pattern brings traditional shapes from an antique quilt into a modern design. It finishes at 52″ x 52″. Of course, the start of a new year is always a good time to bust your stash with fun projects, so we’ve filled this edition with some great scrap quilt patterns. This issue also includes the start of our 2017 wool and flannel series quilt, a new free Project Linus quilt and more. Here’s a look at some of the patterns inside this issue:
