Since its premier in 2001, Quilting Arts Magazine has been dedicated to promoting creative quilting by highlighting the amazing artistry achievable only with fabric and thread. The influence of Quilting Arts is enormous: novice art quilters to professionals will learn new techniques, explore trends, and take a deep dive into the fascinating stories behind the quilts.
