And, we're off!


Today's the day! If you're reading this post, then the first issue of Fat Quarterly is now available for purchase. The six of us have been waiting for this day for months, and we are so excited to share our labor of love with all of you.

What's in store in Issue #1? Here's what you can expect:
  • Six original project patterns -- one from each of us -- including four all-new quilt patterns, a stunning pillow pattern, and a pattern for a fast & fun table runner

  • Interviews with some of today's hottest fabric designers dishing about their new & upcoming lines, including Lizzy House, Laurie Wisbrun, Cosmo Cricket, Mo Bedell, and more

  • Reviews of two new quilting books and a chance to win them both

  • An interview with Ingrid Press, the designer of the little house quilt that took Flickr by storm

  • An inside look at Quilts: 1700-2010, an exhibit on display at London's Victoria & Albert Museum

  • ... and more!
You have two options for purchasing Fat Quarterly. The first (and easiest) way to purchase an issue for yourself is to simply visit the "Buy" section of our site. If you are interested in buying an issue or subscription as a gift for someone else, visit our Etsy shop and complete your purchase over there.

Thanks for all of your interest in and excitement about Fat Quarterly over the past few weeks. We hope we can exceed all of your expectations with our first issue. And, of course, we want to hear what you think. Please comment here on the blog, give us a shout on Twitter, or email us at customerservice@fatquarterly.com.

Happy sewing!


Issue 1 Errata - we deeply apologise for a couple of problems with links in the copy of the e-zine. Please accept our apologies whilst we iron these out.

In the featured crafters sections both Julie's (jaybirdquilts) and Ashley's (filminthefridge) are linking incorrectly. You can find Julie's blog at the following address; http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/m and Ashley can be found over at http://www.filminthefridge.com/
It has come to our attention that some of the hexagon templates are printing off a little smaller than they should be. Please check your templates. The smaller templates should measure 0.75" and the larger templates 1.25" along one side. If they do not then please download your hexagon templates from here

  4. Way to go gang! I have read through the entire first issue, and frankly the only reason I am not sitting at my sewing machine working on at least one of the projects is the 3 year old screaming my name!

  19. The phrase, "You had me at 'hello'" came to mind when I saw the article about Ingrid Press. I just love her art! (Although that link did not work for me either.) I'm already a fan of Lizzy House. Loved discovering Ashley at Film in the Fridge which led me to Modern Quilt Guilds, a great find I didn't know existed. Congratulations on a great debut. Looking forward to more, but July seems a long time to have to wait.
