The Art of Quilting

The Art of Quilting magazine issue 91 (wow)! is out now in the UK and will be available in France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand in a few weeks time.

The editor Annie approached me about my textile art and to my delight has included a double page feature in the gallery section. These works are still patchwork but are hand dyed and only one layer so do not constitute quilts – as you know I also make quilts and she has included one of those too. The largest piece which was commissioned by Kent County Council, is 3m x 1m and was part of a residency at Lamberhurst school. The fabrics were dyed by the children and the fixative for all of the dyes was mixed by Class 5  – in a maths class!


This magazine is a weekly installment publication that includes fabric and instructions to complete a quilt.

    Wonderful to be featured in a quilt magazine. I don’t suppose this is available on our side of the pond?

      I’ve just spoken with the editors about this, unfortunately not in the US yet, sorry. They suggested that you might be able to get a subscription from the Hachette Partwork website but warned P&P might be expensive.
