editor’s note

I WELCOME DECEMBER … cold and crisp afternoons and the creep of elongated shadows at dusk remind me that while one year may be ending, another is about to begin. Soon, the days will lengthen and the eternal cycle will start all over again. December marks the month when we take time to review our personal and professional goals before we set new intentions for the year to come. Every year when it comes time to evaluate, I seem to focus on the negative. In 2019 I had a number of “arty” goals—most of them good intentions—but fell short accomplishing them. Did I make time for art every day? Master free-motion quilting? Keep my studio organized? Learn how to (fill in the blank)? No … but I did try. I started…

it’s your turn

DEAR QUILTING ARTS, “Why didn’t I start this sooner?” I am always bemoaning to my daughters. I have sewn throughout my life, but I have been quilting for only a little over three years—and I am now 82 years old! When I first saw QUILTERS NEWSLETTER magazine in a fabric shop I immediately subscribed. Then one day I got a notice that QUILTERS NEWSLETTER was closing and QUILTING ARTS would take its place. I was pretty upset … until I got my first issue. Oh my, oh my! The quilting world opened up to me. I never would have believed the possibilities of “quilt art” without QUILTING ARTS. I just didn’t know that those kinds of things could be done, and that incredible artists were willing to share their work and their…

Jean Wells Sisters, Oregon it started out with a simple idea: show off a dozen or so quilts and draw attention to her new store, Stitchin’ Post. Jean Wells opened the store in 1975 in Sisters, Oregon, using the entire contents of her teacher’s retirement fund—about $3,200. “It was probably one of the first quilt shops in the country,” she says. “I felt like I might get a good return on it.” And she did. This year marked the 44th Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, now the world’s largest outdoor quilt show venue. Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Cascades mountain range in central Oregon, the 2019 show featured about 1,300 quilts and was attended by approximately 12,000 people. The exact attendance is unknown, notes Jean, because you don’t have to purchase a…

hand-stitched talisman pouches

this project was inspired by my family’s annual summer gathering on Cape Cod. Each year, I design an art project to work on during our vacation. The previous year we had great fun wrapping beach stones with waxed linen, thread, and beads. A beautiful hand-stitched pouch seemed like a perfect follow-up project to hold our beach stones. You can use the completed pouch to hold small special items or just appreciate the pouch on its own as a work of art. MATERIALS • 3½ " x 9" scrap of hand-dyed wool or wool felt for a foundation • Several 5" x 11" scraps of sheer fabric such as tulle, organza, and/or open weave cheesecloth• 3½ " x 9" lining fabric• Fabric scraps• 18"–20" sari silk ribbon• Additional scraps of yarn of varying…
