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.

Publications, we love Bluework, Redwork, Green Work and other forms of Outline Stitch
