Happy Birthday, Quilting Arts!

Happy Birthday postcard by Susan Brubaker Knapp
Did you know that Quilting Arts magazine is 10 years old this month? Hooray! 

My fabric postcard (above) commemorating their birthday is featured in the current issue (December 2010/January 2011) on page 7. I made this piece by first painting the design on white Pimatex cotton fabric, then free-motion quilting it very simply by outlining the candles, flames and the number 10, and doing a bit of quilting on the cake. I finished it with satin stitching around the outside edge.

For a chance to have your work featured in an upcoming issue or on the Quilting Arts website, simply create a 4" x 6" fabric postcard with the number 10 prominently featured or stitched, and mail it to: 

Quilting Arts @ 10

Happy Birthday, Quilting Arts! Here’s to many wonderful years ahead!


  1. What a fun idea. Your postcard is fun....lets just see if I get the time and inspiration to make a post card for them....that would be cool.


  2. I went to the Free stuff QA website but the snowflake thing wasn't there!

    I love it, BTW

  3. It's not there yet, sorry! I will let the folks at Quilting Arts know, Monica!

  4. Monica, the snowflake is up on the Quilting Arts website today! Have fun! :-)


I love it when you leave comments… Otherwise I feel like I'm just talking to myself! If you have time to write, please let me know what you think.
