ARTICLES

NEW: Book Review of a book published in March 2015 - Art Quilts of the Midwest

A Yellow Work Treasure - a delightful background story about a rare antique quilt made with
yellow threads. This article is one of more than 90 that were published in
The Quilter magazine.
Early this year the magazine was declared bankrupt, a loss to all in the quilt world who loved the
magazine and looked forward to my many articles about quilt history. At Quilter's Muse
Publications, we love Bluework, Redwork, Green Work and other forms of Outline Stitch
Embroidery.
