News for FL-SAQA:
Good news from Susan Rienzo: “I will have my art quilt and article published in a new special issue from Quilting Arts Magazine and Quilts, Inc., called: International Quilt Fest: Quilt Scene. I designed a unique way to showcase one of my art quilts in my home that is bold, eye catching, functional and a conversation piece. My quilts are colorful and energizing with a bit of whimsy.”
This special issue captures the energy, beauty, and community of today’s quilt scene. Packed with feature articles, projects, and beautiful photography, this 148-page special issue celebrates the 35th Anniversary of Quilt Fest and will debut at the International Quilt Festival in Houston the end of October. Pre-orders are being taken now. Be sure and check it out.
