Sue de Vanny, MQU’s Featured Artist for the January/February 2018 issue, captures our attention right away with her cover quilt, Night Moves, and the exceptional pieces she shares in her article, Painting with Collage, are just as intriguing. Sandra Bruce tells us about her grid-format technique called Material Matrix, and shows how her unique quilts are created. Viewpoints 9 is a group of artists who have recently challenged themselves to create fabric art based on a single Word, using a different word every few months.

Alex Askaroff delves into the history of the iconic Singer Featherweight in The Perfect Portable—Part One, Katherine Jones demonstrates her Bias Binding Appliqué techniques and Margaret Solomon Gunn provides us with her thoughtful (and enjoyable) tips for teaching a child to sew and quilt. Several quilters share their unique and beautiful landscape quilts in Stitching Hills and Fields, Linda Turner Griepentrog shows us an array of useful tweezers used by sewists and Kathy McNeil tells us the story behind the making of her incredible quilt, All You Need is Love. Sue Reno explores the possibilities of Wet Cyanotype printing and shows how to create a gorgeous quilt out of the results!
