Quiltmaker Journal Could/June 2023: First Look


As a teen rising up within the 80s, London Calling by The Conflict was required listening for our era. Admittedly, I’m a little bit of an anglophile (and a fan of The Conflict) so I assumed this theme can be enjoyable to discover. Nevertheless, the timing of the problem was eerie.

“London calling, sure, I used to be there, too   And you already know what they mentioned?   Effectively, a few of it was true   London calling on the high of the dial  And in any case this, gained’t you give me a smile?”

– Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, The Conflict

Whereas we select concern themes virtually a yr prematurely, the decision for submissions went out every week after Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II died. You couldn’t activate the information with out witnessing scenes from the funeral.

The response from designers was overwhelming. I solely want we had extra pages to fill with the quilt designs submitted. So, with out additional ado, right here is the Could/June 2023 concern of Quiltmaker Journal!

Quiltmaker Magazine May/June 2023
The quilt of the Could/June ’23 concern of Quiltmaker was created by our designer Chis Davis to have a little bit of a punk really feel. We adore it!

Double Decker Bus Quilt by Natalie Crabtree
