Quilting Arts Magazine, Aug./Sept. 2013

In this issue of Quilting Arts® Magazine, we take a close look at the use of text on quilts. You'll get ideas for adding words to your art quilts, giving new meaning and a deeper understanding to your artistry. This beautiful art form opens limitless typographical outlets and produces eye-catching design elements. You'll be inspired to play with words, letters, phrases, and more. Be daring with your art quilts and try out all the techniques and advice from this issue.
