Quilting Arts December 2011/January 2012


Quilting Arts has gone wild with our animal kingdom issue. Create stitched pet portraits, make a reptile raw-edge appliqué collage, and view a gallery of pet quilts from the Quilting Arts 2012 calendar contest. Don't miss articles on the latest art quilting techniques, including tips to create intense art cloth with surface design, an easy method to dye shibori fabrics, and an exploration of free-style free-motion quilting. Enjoy a profile on award-winning art quilter Sheila Frampton-Cooper and a gallery of humorous art quilts from the Quilting Arts "Greatest Pet Peeve" reader challenge. Plus so much more!
