Art Quilting Studio Give-Away!

Hey! My bowl quilts are in the new issue of Art Quilting Studio.



I'm especially proud of this article. I was able to include some personal stories, thoughts about the bowl as a personal symbol and several snippets about the creative process. It's more than just a how-to article. (Of course, you can find tons of how-to in my book, Art Quilt Collage.)



There are four quilts pictured including Nourished and Depleted. These two quilts have the same design, shapes and composition, but I set out to represent entirely different feelings.


Here's a peak at the two quilts on the pages of the magazine.

 

There are several other wonderful art quilters included in this issue! I am a big fan of Heather Dubreiul and Elena Stokes and I loved reading about their process and inspiration.

Stampington is offering a free copy of Art Quilting Studio for me to give away to a blog reader!

So, leave me a comment and tell me your favorite thing to eat out of a bowl! I'll pick a winner on January 31 and the kind folks at Stampington will send out a free copy. (Give away open to U.S. residents only.)

****************

I hope you'll also sign up for my newsletter! Twice a month I share "Three Bits of Inspiration" from interesting sources and how I might apply them in my art and life. Plus news from the studio, upcoming events and lots of art!

*****************
The give-away is over.

MaryAnn Littlejohn wins the magazine! Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I loved hearing what's filling your bowls.

Oh, how I would love a copy of this fabulous magazine! Almost as much as I love eating a big bowl of Tillamook Mud Slide ice cream!!!

Rebecca said...

Mmm...ice cream...

I'm going to say "fish taco cabbage bowl" because I just finished one, and I really do like it.

One of my favorite things to eat out of a bowl is popcorn, sitting on my couch in front of the TV enjoying a good movie. When I'm not down in my sewing room, sewing that is. Thanks for the opportunity, and I really enjoy your work, and your blog. Sheila

Kathleen C said...

I'd love to win the magazine with your article in it (I've been following your blog and enjoy your posts). I'd put homemade vegetable stew in it on a cold night, followed by a bowl of chips when I'm watching TV! Thanks very much.

My favorite: eating goldfish out of an orange little round bowl with my almost two year old grandson James at Christmas! He lives in Oklahoma and I'm in Ohio and oh dear, but I miss that little guy. Actually I would eat anything (um, let me clarify - ALMOST anything) out of a bowl with this cute little guy! Be still my heart! btw, I love your art, love to quilt, and having the magazine would be awesome!

Gene Black said...

I always love a nice bowl of hearty soup or stew.

Linda M said...

In this cold weather we are experiencing a bowl of nice hot soup!

Kathy said...

My bowl would be full of nice, creamy oatmeal with brown sugar, milk, nuts and maple syrup, looking out the window on a snowy morning. Perfect way to start a cold day! Love your book, by the way.

Karen L. said...

I would have to pick two things to eat out of a bowl that would be seasonal. Cold weather would find soup in my bowl and hot weather would find ice cream especially if it's homemade. Thanks for doing the give-away. I am sure whoever wins will enjoy the magazine.

My favorite meal out of a bowl is a Burrito Bowl = all the "innards" of a burrito in a bowl with no tortilla. I make a sauce out of salsa + hummus for on top. Yum! Karen H

I have this "perfectly" shaped bowl which is the only bowl I LOVE eating out of.
My palms cupped around the perfect slope of the sides.
Kraft Mac and Cheese made really soupy with extra milk.

Pasta, of course! Especially if it's smothered with some sort of creamy sauce.

Deborah, thank you for your inspiration! I've moved to VA and will miss working the Dallas Quilt Show with you this year. I'd love a copy of the Art Quilting Studio magazine to set the direction of my new quilting room. On a cold snowy day just after we moved, I made my family's favorite soup, leek and potato, and we enjoyed it with a dollop of sour cream. It's simple to make but always gives me a feeling of well being. Megan M

Deborah said...

Well...I would say ice cream, but I eat that from a cone! So...I suppose it's homemade granola!

Carolyn Morgan said...

Favorite thing to eat out of a bowl: salad! Recently got your book, Art Quilt Collage. Loving it!

sophie said...

I find meals that can be served in a bowl comforting. Lately, one if my favorites to make at home (or pack for lunch) is variations on Korean Bi-Bim-Bop.

Lisa Flowers Ross said...

Love a chance to win the art quilting magazine with the article about your quilted bowls! And speaking of bowls, I like having a bowl of homemade soup throughout the winter months!

Nancy Sopp said...

My favorite thing to eat from a bowl is salad--with a mix of greens, red pepper, cauliflower, beets and other vegetables--a riot of colors and textures.
