The home for American quilt culture
For generations, quilts have covered America. Two years ago, Quiltfolk began “covering” American quilts and the people who love and make them. Every issue of our magazine focuses on quilt culture in a different state or region. As we travel the country in this way, we are amassing a huge collection of photos and stories about one of our nation’s most precious historical and aesthetic resources: quilts. These quilts are the foundation of Quiltfolk Patterns.
Making quilts, making history
Quiltfolk Patterns is a monthly digital pattern subscription that brings you instructions for not one but two spectacular quilts each month, plus lush photography, historical context, and much more.
- Two patterns each month
- Just $3.95/month
Quiltfolk Exclusives are special-edition, long-read features we make available online. Our exclusive reports are FREE for all to access and enjoy.
Check our first-ever Quiltfolk Exclusive with celebrated filmmaker Ken Burns. Quiltfolk Editor in Chief Mary Fons interviewed Burns about his quilt collection when it had its debut exhibit at the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska.
