The Quilt Life magazine made its debut in April 2010; its final edition will be the October 2014 issue, available in mid-August.  That's 28 issues total.  From the beginning, the magazine was owned by the American Quilter's Society (AQS).  At the time AQS approached us, Ricky and Alex were surveying the quilt-publication scene and were coming to realize that there were plenty of quilt magazines already focused on patterns and techniques, so they saw no need to create another.  Instead, The Quilt Life has always been about the stories of the quilts, and of the quiltmakers "living the quilt life."

Everyone involved with The Quilt Life magazine is sad to see it go, but the much-publicized evolutuion from print to online media is partially responsible.  If you have an active subscription, you'll soon be hearing directly from AQS as to how your outstanding subscription will be handled.

On a personal note, we want to thank Meredith Schroeder and the American Quilter's Society for giving us a blank canvas upon which to create and share. 

This brings us to the subject of TheQuiltShow.com. We want to be VERY clear that the magazine and the website are two totally different companies.

The Quilt Show (TQS) is alive and well, and we look forward to continuing the awesome journey of delivering first-rate video to your computer screen and to connecting quilters worldwide!

How Can You Practice The Techniques on the Shows?
July 29, 2014

Posted in Website Features  |   1 Comments  |   Submit a Comment

This year, we started a program for you to practice techniques featured on our weekly shows.  For each show, we provide an 8" finished block so that you can try out the featured artist's technique.  We recommended that you create a notebook for the practice projects, or save them to stitch into a wonderful sampler of your learning journey.  We called this program Little Scraps of Magic, but unfortunately, many viewers didn't really understand what this fun and instructive program is all about.

So...we've renamed LSofM with a less catch, but more "accurate" name:  TQS Show Techniques.  We invite you to join us, make the simple projects, and share your results with others on the site.  This week, we're featuring our "Hexie Block," which allows you to try your hand at creating interesting secondary patterns with your hexies by fussy-cutting.

But first, watch the FREE clip from our current show (Episode 1502) with Mary Elizabeth Kinch.  You'll never look at fabric the same way again!


Make the shows and projects a part of your Quilting Learning Journey.
