  • How to Make a Fabric-Covered Box for Gifts and Storage

    Two items I'm always short on: storage and gift wrap. Two things I always have plenty of: fabric and the urge to play in my studio. Plain boxes become artful storage, gift boxes, or both with fabric painting and printing. By Lynn Krawczyk. This fabric painting project by Lynn Krawczyk solves both...

  • 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...

  • What Quilters (and Their Kin) Wear for Halloween

    Susan Brubaker Knapp and I share something besides our love for creating fiber art. Our birthdays are side-by-side: mine is October 30 and hers is October 31. I can say--and I'm sure Susan agrees--that it's a lot of fun to have your birthday on or near Halloween. Everyone gets dressed up and...

  • Halloween and Fall Fabric Art Freebies and eBook

    As the days grow shorter here in New England, we're drawn to the warmth of firelight: from candles flickering inside grinning jack-o-lanterns to cozy nights by hearth.

  • How to Make Fiber Art Projects in 5 Minutes

    How do you find time to work on your fabric art ? It's a question I hear often (sometimes in my own head). Turn painted fabric into fabric art in 5 minutes. We'd all love hours to spend in our studios--but that's not realistic for most who aren't full-time artists. So how do you find...

  • 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. I've always loved the photo and thought it would make a wonderful quilt art gift for his birthday. It is all done in fabric and thread, not a painted portrait...

  • 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. My love of quilting began with a book on Amish quilts. I like the challenge of using only solid fabrics in keeping with the Amish tradition...
