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!

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
