We’re passionate about creativity and believe creative pursuits are vital for living a well-rounded life. But how many times do you hear people say they don’t have time for it? One thing all successful, productive quilters have in common is that they make time for their craft. And whether you’re working full time or retired, have kids to take care of or long travel commitments – you can make time to quilt. Sometimes it’s a case of carving out a day to spend time with your friends in a sewing group, other times it’s starting a portable hand sewing project if you spend a lot of time on the road. For some of us, quilting time is racked up in 15 minute increments.
This issue, we’re MOTIVATED by modern text quilts with a gallery and a project, and Vicki Holloway’s article on developing a quilting system. We MEET Elizabeth Hartman, Tiffany Horn and Brooke Osborne, three inspiring women with a fantastic eye for colour and design. We MAKE transparency, star, Liberty and modern text quilts.
