  • New: Our Free Guide to Machine Needle Felting for Quilters

    I used to look at my little bits of this and that--fancy fibers, silk and wool roving, hand-dyed gauze, threads, and vintage lace--and wonder what I could do with them. They were too good to throw away, too small to be used. Or so I thought, until I learned how to do needle felting with a machine. Suddenly...

  • Give Your Quilt Art More Drama with Costume Shop Materials

    When some people pass glittering tulle, pastel sheers, sequins and beads, and rows of embroidered trim at the fabric store, they see costumes. Art quilters see stash. In fact, many art quilters have also had a hand in the theatre realm. At some point, they looked at the snips of this and that on their...

  • 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...

  • Pretty Pincushions from Fabric Scraps: 4 Ideas

    I have a bunch of pincushions, some from my mom and grandmother, and others I've picked up along the way. My favorite is made of felted wool, and was probably made by felting a "log" of wool together, and cutting it into 2" slices. Once, I was using this pincushion near my machine...

  • Sewing Beads on Fabric: How to Reverse a Mistake

    I'm what you might call a hasty (read: impatient) stitcher. Methodical is not in my vocabulary. As a result, I make a lot of mistakes that I have to undo when embroidering or sewing beads on fabric . More often than not, I end up cutting the thread and starting over, all the while trying to block...

  • Sewing Beads on Fabric: Write with the Beaded Backstitch

    Recently I spied a Facebook post by Candy Glendening in which she shared a picture of a fabric zipper-bag she made to hold her son's charging devices while he travels. Of course, Candy not only made the bag from her own dyed fabric but stitched her son's name on it, to boot. No one else is going...

  • Fabric Fusing Tips for a Coloring Book Quilt

    When I was a child, before we had handheld devices--or even more than a handful of TV channels--we often passed the time by coloring. Any time the adults wanted to keep the young folk quiet and occupied, out came a fresh coloring book and box of crayons, and we were absorbed for what seemed like hours...
