From the publisher
This issue of Quilting Arts explores a variety of techniques for creating portraits in cloth, and offers tips for both the beginner and experienced fiber artist.

If you enjoy sketching or painting your subjects first, you might try the techniques described by Sharon Hendry in our Off the Page series. Pauline Salzman, known for creating pet portraits, shares her easy technique using a photograph as a guide for people portraits. And for all of those thread sketching and machine quilting enthusiasts, Melissa Averinos demonstrates how to use a sewing machine as a drawing tool.

For your inspiration enjoy the extraordinary portrait work of Deborah Hyde, Sandra Bruce, and Cindy Hickok; a gallery of quilts from the SAQA exhibit, Text Messages; an interview with Ann Johnston; results from the "Fly Your Flag" Prayer Flag Reader Challenge and more!
