Generation Q :: Review & Giveaway


Posted on July 7th, by Amy in give away, review. 100 comments

Hi there! I’m jumping in on the Generation Q Magazine blog tour! I’m very excited for my friends at GenQ, this first issue is packed full of brilliant wit and charm, great information, and a couple patterns too!

If you aren’t familiar with Generation Q yet, be sure to check out their site, and like them on facebook for all the latest. Melissa, Jake, Megan and Scott have been working non-stop to get this community backed magazine to print. They live in  different areas around the states, and connect online like so many of us do on a daily basis. They “get” the quilting community and it is reflected in their pages! They have a way of writing that feels like you are chatting with a great friend – perfect.

GenQ includes information that you want to know about people in the industry (like the cute cover couple!), tools of the trade, and a little fabric scoop too! I loved looking through all the articles, and can’t wait for the next issue.

If you would like a copy of your very own, leave me a comment, telling me what you most look forward to in a new magazine. I’ll select a winner on Wednesday, July 11, 2012.
Check out the other stops on the tour to learn more about the mag, and you can purchase a copy of GenerationQ here!

    I don’t have any quilting magazines, I look forward to it though!

  2. 2

    With quilting magazines the first thing I look forward to is the pictures. I flip through them all, and then go back a read the magazine.

  3. 3

    I think inspiration is what I would most look forward to in a quilting magazine – new ideas, seeing how colours I’d never think of work together.

    Carol says:

    I love new ideas! Fresh takes on life…and dreaming about what it must be like to exist in a world where the design crew comes in and fluffs everything to look awesome. Admit it, who would want to live in a ‘magazine house’ no dust, no dirty dishes stacking up in our studios, no laundry……

  24. 24

  31. 31
    KatieQ says:

    Lately, the projects in most quilting magazines seem to be retreads. In some cases the exact same pattern made over in different fabrics. I look forward to seeing new and different patterns and innovative techniques.

  35. 35
    Chelsea says:

    So excited to see their first issue! I don’t buy a lot of quilt magazines. I find they’re full of patterns that are either too easy or if they are a bit more difficult, still uninspiring. With all the great stuff you can find on the Internet, why buy a boring mag? This looks different, though – it’s like the great stuff online but in print. Perfect!

  36. 36
    Beth says:

    I like to see different color palettes and modern patterns. I also love any kind of tip or trick to make my work cleaner and crisper!

    MarciaW says:

    In a new quilting magazine, I expect to see fresh quilting ideas, patterns, and interviews where the conversation is from a new perspective (example the couple interview AB). Thanks for the chance to try out this new magazine.

  42. 42
    Amanda E says:

    I am most interested in the side most quilt magazines don’t cover. The life of a quilter. I am also interested in a more up-to-date magazine. *finger crossed*

  66. 66
    Amy C says:

    Hmmm… I guess I look for projects that look like I could actually make them – not too complicated and with clear instructions and DIAGRAMS if there are no pictures/few pictures. I am a visual learner so these are important to me.

  88. 88

    I love the exposion of modern print fabrics and patterns that is going on, of which you have been a big part. I have a little quilt shop in Woodstock, NB, Canada (near the Maine border) and we are what you might call “Country” people but I, myself, have baby fever (soon to be grammie) and some of my customers are just plain “wild”. I hope that the magazine has lots of pictures, and patterns to help people cross over. By the way, some of my oldest quilters love the new fabrics because they are so pretty and fresh!
