  • Thanks and Wishes from the Quilting Arts Team

    Today is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., a day when we gather with family and friends, stuff ourselves with traditional foods (or their vegetarian, gluten-free, low-sodium versions), and reflect on what we are thankful for. Some of us also watch football. Our entire Quilting Arts family feels especially...

  • Observe: Quilt Art Inspiration from Jane LaFazio

    Where do you get your inspiration for art quilts ? Quilting artists get asked that question all the time. Most artists I know have keen powers of observation. They take in the patterns of bricks and grids in the city, the shapes and colors of the garden, and the unusual (to them) motifs and architecture...

    Monoprinting techniques make me feel like a kid in art class: most are easy, fun, and a little messy. But making collograph prints has to be the most fun of all. You start by gathering found objects, gluing them collage-fashion onto a stiff substrate like a canvas board. Varnish over the whole thing...

  • A Kid-friendly Fabric Painting Technique for Grown-Up Artists

    One of my favorite parts of being a fiber artist is that it gives me permission to play. Rearranging colorful squares of fabric, printing and painting on fabric --they all lighten my mood and bring out the kid in me. While taping " Quilting Arts TV" Season 14, I saw artists create with lots...

  • Re: Hello from North Carolina - I have a question...

    I started by reading and reading and reading some more. Then I got very confused! I finally purchased a book by Melanie Testa, "Inspired to Quilt" that has recipes to follow step by step to prepare fabric and to "paint with dyes." Her book however, does not go into dyeing large batches...
