I'm a cover girl!

Wow, my first cover! This is the issue that has the first of a two part project on making these houses. This article explains the painting process for making the collaged and painted fabric. I love how they added the birds and nests for the photo, so cute!

  16. When I was browsing the magazine section of my local book store, I spotted a bird house on the cover of Quilting Arts and thought "Hey, that looks like something Judy Coates Perez would make!" Well, imagine my surprise when I opened the mag to see that it WAS your birdhouse! I was so excited for you, Judy! I can't even begin to imagine how you must be feeling! Cloud nine, I bet!! Kudos!

  19. I really enjoyed your article in cloth, paper, scissors! It was very inspiring! Please, what is PFD fabric? Thanks! Amy

  20. Hi Amy, Thanks.

    PFD means prepared for dyeing. The fabric does not have any finishes or sizing in it. You can prepare fabric that is not PFD by washing it in hot water with a small amount of detergent. Fabric that is not PFD may cause problems with the paint bonding to the cloth. If a drop of water beads up on the surface of the fabric it is not PFD.
