Even though Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday is actually on April 21st, today is the Queen’s Official Birthday in the U.K. And crafter Sarah Brazier of Bolton, England, is celebrating with a gorgeous quilt that she made for the occasion. She’s also offering her pattern in her Etsy shop.
What’s super neat to boot is that Sarah sent us pictures of her first quilt ever years ago, and her letter was published in CRAFT Volume 09. Nice work, Sarah! It’s wonderful to see your personal style develop over the years.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
