It’s all about the stitch.

Machine Quilting Unlimited focuses on the machine quilting process. Our articles are instructive, informative and enlightening, showcasing the latest products, designs, teachers and quilting celebrities. We educate readers through how-to instruction and detailed product reviews, and we dedicate a portion of the magazine to showcasing award-winning, machine-quilted creations.
