Checkerboard Stars - Pattern in Mar 2012
Quilt patterns and much more!
As the title implies, The Quilt Pattern Magazine, is full of patterns! Our aim is to include 4 complete projects (3 patchwork and 1 non-patchwork pattern) in each issue. Examples of non-patchwork projects are: totes, pillows, ornaments, penny rugs, place mats, pin cushions, checkbook covers, needle books, and other applique projects. We do our best to include large, medium, and small projects, as well as beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
Color Explosion - Pattern in May 2012
More complex patterns are presented as BOMs enabling them to be broken into smaller, doable steps. Quilters love mysteries so we include them, too. We look for unique mysteries with a big surprise in the final step. Quilters also like learning new techniques; we supply those via workshops.
Garden Beauties - BOM started Jan 2013
Every issue includes one patchwork and one applique BOM in progress, plus 2 more projects chosen from among the following : BOM, mystery, workshop.
Pattern Pastiche is our unique and wonderful bonus service – a place to chat and message other quilters, share photos, and have fun. We create special groups for our BOMs, mysteries and workshops. In many cases, the project designer joins in to help, give advice, and answer questions! TQPM‘s staff are all members of Pattern Pastiche. We enjoy chatting and the special camaraderie.
Wenche's Christmas Baltimore - BOM started Feb 2012
Although TQPM is a pattern magazine, we do include interesting articles. Anna Branch, in her series, The Barefoot Quilter, shares her Canadian quilting life. Chris Hammacott, who lives in Wales, also provides a unique series with her Diary of a Quilter. We try to insert two other articles per issue, a book review and a topic sure to interest quilters.
Color of October - Workshop started May 2012
Unique for 2013, is a series of EQ7 lessons by Reeze Hanson. The first lesson debuted in the February issue.
On top of all those patterns, BOMs, mysteries, workshops, articles and lessons, we also have a fun game to entertain us when we are unable to quilt.

How can we provide so much for so little? We love our job!
