If paper piecing is your preferred technique, look no further than our Issue #20 cover quilt, Hypnotic Eye
by Melissa Dunworth. Do you find yourself avoiding quilts with scalene, isosceles, and equilateral triangle pieces? Donna Lynn Thomas helps you understand these funky triangles and takes the fear out of sewing with them in Quilting Fundamentals. Put your newfound skills to use in two projects: Pathways by Rebecca Bryan and Hexagon Stars by Sharon McConnell. Linda Turner Griepentrog brings us into the environmental discussion with a look at organic fabric and products in Opting for Organics, plus we show you a few of the many fabric options that are available to quilters in Swatch, our fabric column. There’s lots more to inspire you in this issue, including an interview with fabric artist Melanie Testa, who’s making a difference not only in the art world but also as an advocate for breast cancer survivors.
