  • Mixed-Media Quilts and Collage: Tips for Stitching on Paper

    For a period of time, I made fabric and paper quilts using vintage maps.

  • Patchwork Quilts Then and Now

    I'm jumping on the Throwback Thursday bandwagon (#tbt) and posting this image of me with a patchwork quilt I made many years ago. It was the second quilt I'd ever made, a wedding gift for a friend, from pattern by Eleanor Burns. Me with my second patchwork quilt, about 25 years ago. It's...

  • Design a Quilt with an Artist's Eye

    It's not every day you get to pose as an artist's model. But that's just what I did when Carrie Bloomston needed a volunteer to pose (fully clothed!) while she demonstrated a drawing exercise.

  • Learn Machine Quilting Designs: How to Stitch a Spiral

    When I think about it, I'm astounded by the variety of ways you can learn how to machine quilt these days. Many of us learned straight machine quilting or free-motion quilting from a family member. Others took a class or followed machine quilting instructions from--yes--a book! Spiral machine quilting...

    Let's face it, lately quilters and fiber artists seem to love creating portraits--from pixel quilt designs, to collaged faces, to thread painting and sketching techniques. One of Melissa Averinos's 'Thread Ladies,' made by drawing with thread and painting with water-soluble colored pencils...

  • Design a Quilt with Your Inner Child

    Do you create quilt designs like a child? Some people might be offended by that question, but I'm not. When I reminisce over my children's early drawings, I see freedom. Freedom to imagine the sun green, to see a fish in a squiggle, or to paint a boat sailing into the air. As art quilters, we...
