Quilting Arts Magazine, Oct./Nov. 2013

In this issue of Quilting Arts® Magazine, we celebrate how quilt artists use their talents and passion to reach out to others. This issue is filled with examples of how artists give back to their communities. Learn about how the International Quilt Festival Pet Postcard Project initiated by Pokey Bolton has raised thousands of dollars for pets in need. Read interviews with Ami Simms of the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative and Berene Campbell who initiated the To Boston with Love project. Jane LaFazio shares her perspective on prayer flags and describes how they are used to show concern for others. And don't miss the new reader challenge, encouraging you to join the prayer flag movement with miniature flags of your own.
