Quilting Arts August/September 2017
From the back seat of a station wagon visiting National Parks to sandy beaches at the seashore, we all enjoy a vacation now and then. Whether this year’s trip is a “staycation” or sent you across the ocean, this issue of Quilting Arts is for you. Think about your travels as the source of inspiration for your artwork as you learn about new surface design techniques, innovative ways to embellish, and interesting free-motion quilting motifs. You’ll love this issue if you collect memorabilia and ephemera from your travels and want to include them in your quilts; enjoy hand stitching and embroidery and are open to fresh applications of stitch on fabric; natural pigments intrigue you and you want to incorporate them into your painted quilts; you want to explore adding text and texture with free-motion quilts; photo transfer techniques are your passion and you want to be more creative with this process...and more!
This issue features the following fiber artists and their techniques: Ana Buzzalino and her precise free-motion text; the last installment of Susan Purney Mark’s “Shifting into Neutral” series; Wen Redmond’s approach to creative photo transfer and collage; natural pigments with Chantal Guillermet; Lynn Krawczyk’s simple yet stunning hand embroidery; anew mounting technique with Candy Glendenning and straight from the sketchbook travel journal quilt with Jane Haworth.
