Giveaway: Quilting Arts June/July 2013 issue

posted in: Published, Windblown | 19

QA-Jun2013-Portraits1I just opened the June/July 2013 issue of Quilting Arts today and eagerly read Martha Sielman’s article, “Creating Realistic Portraits.” Obviously, a topic near and dear to my heart.

In the article, she explored three specific areas, “capturing someone’s personality through their eyes, creating hands that do not look awkward or out of scale, and quilting the work without creating unwanted wrinkles.” She illustrated her article with quilts made by Jenny Bowker, Lora Rocke, Mary Pal, Cheryl Ferrin, and my quilt, “Windblown.”

    Hi Maria, I love your work and have your making faces DVD but am still waiting for the inspiration (and time) to use it. I’d love to have a copy of Quilting Arts with this article. These are all areas I feel unsure about.
    Thanks for the chance to get it free; if I don’t win I’ll look for the issue. 🙂
