Buy Issue 16 (Family) of Quiltfolk magazine.

The circumstances surrounding travel during the pandemic (especially in late spring 2020) prompted Quiltfolk to create their first-ever themed edition, all about family.

Quiltmakers know that families are a lot like quilts. They come in many colours, patterns, and sizes. In fact, specific quilts can describe families. Some families are wholecloth quilts: strong and stable, with few seams and no skipped stitches (until you look closely). There are “kitchen sink” scrap quilt families, where wildly different patches come together, hopefully harmoniously (though we know that with scrap quilts, anything could happen). There are old quilts and old families. There are young families, new as quilts made with the latest fabric and a fresh sewing machine. Then there are the tattered quilt families, the ones that look like they could fall apart at any second. But don’t despair, because as any quiltmaker will tell you, there’s a way to mend just about anything.

What kind of quilt is your family? Perhaps it’s one made of memories, like Asake Denise Foy Jones’ Land of My Hands or Shiloh Holley’s quilt for her late father. Or maybe your family’s got a new lease on life, like the quilts coming out of Brittany Young’s studio. It takes luck, faith, and a lot of work to create a family quilt that endures. Even so, those who help sew it all together will tell you that nothing matters more.

What is Quiltfolk magazine?

Whether you’re looking for traditional, modern, antique or art quilts, this beautiful magazine has it all. Quiltfolk travels America state by state with a team of writers and photojournalists to uncover spectacular stories, meeting and interviewing incredible members of the quilting community – shop owners, designers, collectors, scholars, curators and everyday quilters – to learn about their lives and work. Each quarterly issue is a new and inspiring adventure!

This magazine is available in PAPER format. 164 pages, offset printed and perfect bound, full colour on uncoated paper, completely advertisement-free. Printed in the USA.
