Latest news

Pattern 002 available now!

Pattern 002 takes us back to Louisiana — the northern half this time — where a beautiful Source Quilt was discovered at a community arts center. The quilt’s pattern has many names, but its story is one of a kind.

“Where We Sew” Photo Contest​

We asked Quiltfolk readers to show us their sewing space. After hundreds of submissions, our team has done the impossible and picked the six lucky winners. They will receive a FREE copy of the brand new, limited-edition book Handmade Getaway. We supported this book during its Kickstarter campaign and are excited to share it with these lovely winners.

Issue 07 available now!

Quiltfolk magazine just keeps getting better! In Issue 07, our team journeys up the boot and into the bayous of Louisiana, exploring the quilting community one parish at a time. This might just be our best issue yet.
