Quilting Arts gift

I just got my issue of Quilting Arts gift (you can order a copy here)
The Cover art is the handy work of Beryl Taylor, who's inspiring work I just discovered! and who's book I just ordered! and can not wait to get my hands on!
(How have I never noticed her work!? I must be guilty of hiding under my own little mixed media rock!)

In this issue you will also find a article by me, on how I create fabric cones,
cheek out Quilting Arts Gifts Online Extras and you can see the back of this cone here.

and because this was a special Holiday issue they asked all the contributing authors to send in a hand made Holiday card, you can see all our cards here.

(My Holiday card)

art quotes
There's no retirement for an artist, it's your way of living so there's no end to it.
::: Henry Moore :::

Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.
::: Og Mandino :::

I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
::: Andrew Wyeth :::

You're sitting there with your muse and your muse is telling you something and you’re following it, and you end up the next day looking at it and thinking "what the hell was the muse saying to me?"
::: Nathan Oliveira :::

your cones are wonderful ! I love the back of the pieces as much as the front! It is so exciting to watch you grow and get the recognition that you sooo deserve! i love your new banner the heart in hand is brilliant and I love the fact that they are your very own hands!!!! they are beautiful hands!
you will adore Beryl's book- I think that you have been just a bit busy with other projects and have delayed your exposure to her work- prepare to be amazed and have fun with it!!!
Art on and on and ON , My friend!!!!
