I adore Quilting Arts Magazine and from the day that I found them, several years ago I found my home for art quilting. I cancelled all other subscriptions. I love the beautiful quilt art in the magazine and that they are constantly finding artists who are pushing the boundaries in an ever expanding medium. The techniques that their contributors come up with and the quilts they publish are amazing. I also quickly picked up their sister magazine, Cloth Paper Scissors, from the first issue.
I am so proud to say that I have had some pieces printed in both magazines through their reader challenges and swaps. After many trials and tribulations I came up with a technique to print with rust using thermofax screens and it is now published! I hope you will check out the magazine. It is out for subscribers now, but will hit newsstands for the Oct/Nov 2013 issue. I hope to have another rusting article printed. You can see the quilt, Wrangled Rust, that I made for the article here.
Quilting Arts has expanded and pushed me to try so many new things. I enjoy doing their reader challenges because they are small pieces that you can experiment with new techniques. Their challenges have led me to many things I would not have pushed myself to try under normal circumstances. Thank you Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors!
