I was delighted to contribute a project to the new Maddermade Making Magazine. It’s such a beautiful, beautiful book with many inspiring projects ranging from knitting to sewing to cooking and much more. The theme for this first issue is flora, a great theme that resulted in some super lovely projects. In addition to that, the photography and styling by Carrie Bostick Hoge of Maddermade could not be any more elegant, enticing or inspiring. It is all so incredibly lovely.
My project, Native Coasters, is a fun weekend project full of color and texture.
I liked pairing linear piecing with flora-esque and hand drawn fabrics. I used some new euclid, one of the newer doe pieces, some crosshatch from architextures…
and some bold carkai on the back for a nice contrast.
I loved playing up the texture in both the fabric substrates, the prints and the quilting/hand tying itself. Small projects like these are perfect for experimenting and having fun.
Unfortunately, this first issue is already sold out, BUT the good news is that issue #2 is on the horizon, and I’m sure it’ll be just as worthwhile.
