About a year ago, we celebrated the launch of a new quilt magazine, The Quilt Pattern Magazine. A whole year ago!
So many magazines start out with such good intentions only to fizzle under the pressure of a monthly publication schedule. It’s one thing to start off with a bang and quite another to hang in there for the long haul.
We’ve been pleased to see that The Quilt Pattern Magazine seems to be one of the long-haulers.

We need to say right up front that we’re a bit biased on this one. The Quilt Pattern Magazine published our Double Wedding Ring Made Easy workshop this past year. They were very rigorous in the way they tested the pattern and they made sure all the directions were complete and accurate. We didn’t mind the scrutiny since we wanted it to be perfect, too. We have heard horror stories from other designers with other magazines who had their patterns “edited” to fit in the space provided by leaving out important bits of information. This didn’t happen with QPM.
As well, they’ve asked us to write a little piece now and then for the magazine. We’ll definitely let you know when that happens.
The Quilt Pattern Magazine is put out by a very friendly and professional group of people. If you’re a designer, it’s a magazine we can definitely recommend. Send them your idea and you’ll get a quick reply.
If you’re a quilter, we think you’ll find lots of inspiration in this online magazine.
