Issue 8 of Make Modern Magazine is out and I am pleased to share my A+ Journal Covers in this modern quilty issue. These Journal covers fit over a US standard Composition book. They feature plus sign shapes creating a scrappy look with the plus signs either in brights or neutrals. I tried quilting them two ways, but I think I love the natural, squiggly lines on the aqua journal the best.
Make Modern is an online magazine created by Jane, Lara and Kristy and is filled with delightful modern quilt and sewing patterns. Make Modern is a digital magazine put together by quilters for quilters who are passionate about modern quilting and sewing. And I will add, it is very reasonably priced for the huge amount of content.
This cover is pieced with lots of 1 1/2 inch squares. I thought it would use up some of my pile of scraps. I like the low volume plus signs, they really make the aqua scraps stand out.
The inside features a little pocket to tuck in a pen or pencil. It all closes with some elastic and some funky buttons.
Here is a look at the purple and grey cover with the background as low volume grey prints.
I envisioned these to take to my meetings where I needed to take notes. They also make great gifts with that personal quilty touch. Wouldn’t these be perfect for a favorite teacher or as a holiday gift for a friend who likes to journal?
