On Renewing quilt magazines

Over the years I have gotten about every quilt magazine there is out there.  I like each one and there are things I don't like about each one.  I guess no one magazine is perfect....sigh.

But I am looking at renewing or not renewing some this year.  I now have both my subscriptions and my mom's,  who is now in final stages of Alzheimers in a nursing home.  So I am truly overwhelmed with copies of things.

I was wondering, is there a Modern Quilt Magazine out there anywhere?

I do like the Quick Quilts and now there is one called Simple Quilts.  And a lot of those ideas may be tweaked to be non-traditional, but is there anything dedicated to Modern Quilting?

There is a digital magazine that comes out quarterly that is dedicated to Modern Quilting - Fat Quarterly. Great 'rag' - I've subscribed since the start. You can see it here: http://www.fatquarterly.com/

No relation to the mag - just a happy reader. :)

Have you been to www.generationqmagazine.com ?
Jake Finch & Melissa Thompson, were editors at Quilter's Home & Megan Dougherty was one of the writers & they've started an online magazine/blog. They're working towards being a print magazine eventually, but for now they put out an article a day. It's lots of fun & definitely goes Modern!

I have a stack of quilt magazines too. I have given away so many over the last 5 years. I have decided not to renew. I have been getting so many ideas online and I love watching Youtube tutorials.
I did take the magazines and cut out the ideas I liked best and I have a binder full of great quilts I hope to make one day.

Quilting Arts is contemporary but it's about more than just quilting. Includes other fiber arts. You can pick it up at bookstores.

I've found I get far more from blogs on the Internet than any magazine - and I've tried all the ones available. I would love to find a good Quilt magazine. There's a newish one out called "Mollie Makes" which has lots of sewing related things - I've read one and I'm going to try a few more.

I subscribe to all of the magazines but have learned much more about quilting from blogs and YouTube tutorials. The magazines, for the most part, only teach quilt construction not quilting. I will let all of mine except Love of Quilting expire.
