Five modern makers on Instagram that consistently make us drool


One of the great things about being a part of the Modern Makers team is that we get to legitimately spend time scrolling through loads and loads of Instagram photos!  And when we find something or someone special, we have to let you know about it.

So we thought we’d share some of our favourite Australian IGers (living here or overseas) with you.  We’ve rationed you to five today (there is after all only so much heart fluttering a person can take!) but the list is long and there’ll be more to come.

So in no particularly order, if you’re into modern quilting and making, you need to hop onto IG and follow these people right now!


Kara Kreis

Serious colour explosion and lover of all things rainbow!  If you’re having a dull day, visit Kara’s feed for instant enlightenment.

Emma Jean Jansen

From sneak peeks of future patterns, fabric designs and her book, Emma’s feed  always has something to drool over.  (We promise there’s not some kind of secret rule that we have to mention Emma in each and every one of our blog posts!  She’s just so awesome that she pops up everwhere!)




Colby Radcliffe aka The Authentic Stitch (previously colbyg78)

Colby is not just a quilter but an incredible sewist and embroiderer.  Her IG feed will blow your mind!



Kristy Lee aka Quiet Play

We love that Kristy shares her own patterns (of course!) as well has her quilting endeavours – usually with rainbow flare!


Carolyn Murfitt aka Freebird Quilting Designs

Carolyn specialises in custom free-hand longarm quilting and shares her progress and completed projects. Inspires you to consider the potential of negative space.



Hmmmm, can we sneak in one more?

Modern Makers Retreat

Hands down the best feed on IG!  Okay, so we’re a teensy bit biased, but seriously, we feature the creme de la creme of makers so there’s a whole lotta eye candy going on there!


Did you know that you can use the tag #modernmakersquilt for a chance to be featured on our IG feed?
