We’ve been hard at work preparing Issue 8 of Fat Quarterly for all of our wonderful readers & subscribers.  Emails will begin going out to our subscribers tomorrow with your access codes, and Issue 8 will go on sale for general purchase on Tuesday, January 31st.  To celebrate, we’ve invited a special friend to introduce our theme for this issue to you …

Geared-Up Robot

Well, hello there!  Who is this?  It’s our Geared-Up Robot, here to reveal that issue 8 of Fat Quarterly is all about paper piecing!  The Geared-Up Robot was designed and made by Jenny Novinsky for the Electric Quilt Company, and you can find Jenny’s pattern — as well as a useful guide on how to use EQ7 to design your own cute stuffed figures — in issue 8.

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of projects from our newest issue.
