Modern Quilting Patterns & Tools

At GetMaking we’ve got a passionate interest in traditional crafts and love watching master craftsmen take those skills and apply a modern style. Latifah Saafir is one of those experts: her quilting work has been featured in many books and she is in demand as a teacher and exhibitor, and now is a fabric designer with her first range of quilting fabrics.

Latifah has a designer’s eye for bold geometric and organic shapes and her quilt and fabric designs have a gorgeous balance of colour and shape: they are the very definition of modern quilting. She makes it easy for experienced quilters and beginners and that's just what we look for at GetMaking.

If you want to learn more about modern quilting you can join the Modern Quilters Guild, an international organisation designed to support the growth of modern quilting (and yes they have groups in Australia!) originally founded by Latifah Saafir and another well known quilt artist Alissa Haight Carlton.
