Those of you who are our facebook friends already know that we recently conducted a poll to see how many of our readers quilt sitting down vs. standing up. As we expected, the results were nearly even!
Information like this helps us plan the content for future issues. All of us, and Senior Editor Kit Robinson in particular, pay close attention to trying to achieve balance in terms of the focus of our articles. We try to include traditional, contemporary, art and modern quilts. We can’t provide a perfect balance in every issue of the magazine, but we definitely try to even things out over time.
We feature a range of quilting techniques such as using curved templates, freehand quilting, and thread painting, whether accomplished by longarm or a domestic machine.
Straight up eye candy and art quilting techniques.
Even articles on fabric types, like this one on wool.
Other topics have included book reviews and a gallery of quilts in every issue, travelogues from international teachers, quilting fundamentals, a variety of technical discussions related to machines, and so much more!
Achieving balance is never easy, but we’re going to keep working to bring you the best selection of machine quilting information we can. We’d love to hear from you, so please feel free to send us ideas or feedback, either through comments here, our facebook page, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
