I still consider myself kinda a newbie at fabric/textile art. I still have a lot to learn. I tried the traditional quilting but could not get past cutting the pieces out. I ended up using those pieces in random quiltie pieces. There are a lot more possibilities for me with fabric, fibers, and surface design. The design factor is different as well. I can't explain it but design on paper for me is different than on fabric. I use fabric now in a lot of ways that I used to use paper but I design my pieces differently now.
Back to Quilting Arts, I have an article on page 64 on recycled wall hangings. I love how the magazine makes my pieces look better than they do in real life (my opinion, of course). The photography is great. I also have my go green! reader challenge piece on pg. 82. This is all in the new Quilting Arts issue #34. It is their go green! issue. You can also read about some my go green! ideas on their website:
