  • Learn How to Quilt in a Group

    My favorite work day is Tuesday, because that's when our office holds show-and-tell. Given the array of quilters, sewists, and mixed-media artists in our group (many of whom also knit, crochet, and make jewelry), you never know what to expect. Managing editor Rose deBoer (L) and Assistant editor...

    Exquisite quilt art arrives at our offices every day. As a quilter myself, I know how scary it can be to wrap one of my "babies" up and ship it off to a magazine, client, or venue. We do our utmost to make sure quilts from our contributors are well cared for while they are in our hands and...

  • Art Couture: Three Wearable Art Techniques to Try

    Whenever I go to an art exhibit, a quilt show, Quilt Market, or a similar kind of event, I always keep an eye out for fashion.

  • Dad and Jack

    This is a fabric portrait I made for my dad's 85th birthday. It's from a photo of him when he was 9 years old, posing with his dog, Jack.

  • Checks & Balances: Art Quilt by Caryl Bryer Fallert

    This quilt is a visual interpretation of a philosophical concept. "Checks and Balances" is a term most of us first heard in our high school civics classes, an idea to which we aspire in government and in the world around us, and often fall short. Perhaps the best way to achieve balance is to...

    I've always loved the styles of the 1950's, especially the Atomic Clock. This quilt was created from an original drawing and machine pieced and appliqued.
