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 labour 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 on the blog, give us a shout on Twitter, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our original idea was that we felt people like us weren't wholly represented in the magazines available. There are lots of beautiful mags about, but where was the magazine that represented the flickr groups we hang out in, the blogs we visit each day? We wanted something modern, but with patterns aimed at our levels, and perfectly do-able for the beginner quilter, yet not too dull for the more advanced quilter. You have to remember the magazine is for YOU, so if you have something you'd like to see, a designer you'd like to know more about, any ideas on how we can make FQ better then let us know. We're nothing without you. And with your input, and your feedback we can grow to give you even more value for money.
To those of you that have already bought issues (and subscriptions!) - thank you from the very bottom of our hearts. You cannot know how much it means to all of us that you would part with money that is even more precious at this time, with the economy being the way it is.
