Canadian Quilter Magazine

Our magazine is published three times a year and celebrates the rich talent of Canada’s creative quilting culture. We feature all genres and their makers while fostering the passions and preserving the traditions of our vibrant quilt making community. Current and back issues of Canadian Quilter are available at a cost of $12.99 each.

Spring 2021

Welcome spring! Enjoy a fascinating look at the history of the quilting community in North Buxton, ON, a northern terminus for the Underground Railroad and planned settlement for fugitive slaves. See how the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild celebrated 10 years with a virtual retreat and how a retired teacher shared her love of quilting with not one but seven young makers, sponsoring them for the Youth Challenge. Learn how two long-time friends connected to create a touching tribute in the face of a Nova Scotia tragedy and see how PreQuilt helps you visualize your quilting projects and a myriad of colour options long before the first cut is made into your fabric. And easy 'no Y seam' hexies make up into a charming throw filled with colourful blossoms.
