Candy Dash - pattern available in Make Modern

Last year I was excited to learn that a group of enterprising Aussie crafters were launching their own online quilting magazine.  Make Modern includes patterns, articles, interviews and lots of interesting tidbits.  I don't buy a lot of quilting magazines, mainly because I think they aren't great value for money (so much advertising!), but Make Modern is really packed with content and well worth the very reasonable purchase price ($6.95).

I'm now very pleased to be able to let you know that I have a pattern in the newly released Issue Four of Make Modern.

Candy Dash 

I really love the classic churn dash block and a couple of years ago now, I sketched out an idea to make the churn dash shape look like it was floating on a multi-coloured background.

Candy Dash 

This mini quilt, called Candy Dash, is the realisation of that idea.  It's paper pieced for accuracy, and although I made the background to my version out of a rainbow of blenders, you could use any combination of fabrics that took your fancy.

You can preview Issue Four of Make Modern here, and if you like what you see, you can buy the issue (or a subscription) here.

P.S. A QuiltCon recap is coming soon!

I like this. Not a fan of the churn dash ordinarily, but I like the twist on this
