The primary objective of Curated Quilts is to provide readers with a trove of modern, thought-provoking, quilting inspiration. As a bonus, every issue features three modern quilt patterns. Each pattern relates to the journal topic.
The patterns are designed by various makers and include detailed instructions, including pictures and illustrations to aid you in making the project. We try to make sure that our patterns will accommodate a variety of skill levels and techniques. We also try to provide you with projects that read high-design and innovative thinking in modern quilt-making.

If you’ve made a project from a Curated Quilts pattern, please share it with us on social media. Tag us @curatedquilts and include the hashtags #CuratedQuilts and #ShowMeYourCQ.
We are always accepting submissions for new patterns. We want our patterns to accommodate a variety of skill levels and techniques. The pattern must relate back to the specific journal topic it would be featured in and exude the modern aesthetic. Future topics can be found on the submissions page of our website and usually are announced four to five months in advance of the release of the journal. www.curatedquilts.com/pages/submission-guidelines
