I got the new quilt magazine by Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. I'm not real thrilled with it. 80% art quilts, which I really have no interest in....good reading otherwise tho. Let me know what you think, there are alot of fans of art quilts out there I know

Art quilts are beautiful, but I prefer to make bed quilts to give to my family and friends.

I'm not interested in art quilts. They are pretty but I would rather see pieced quilts that I might enjoy makeing if I buy a magizine.

This will be an interesting thread...I didn't subscribe, but I like mags with lots of patterns and how to technique articles.

I'll have to see if I can find it because I make art quilts.

I browsed through the magazine but it didn't interest me. I heard that Eleanor Burns is thinking of doing a Quilt in a Day Magazine. Now that is one I know I'd be interested in.

When does a quilt stop being a quilt and turn into fabrie art? Went to a hugh quilt show and was delighted to see the art quilts - was very dissapointed that there were nor award ribbons on useable quilts. It seemed the more machine quilting the happier the judges were. Just a observation.
