The Secret Is Out–AQS Introduces a New Magazine—

“The Quilt Life” with Ricky Tims & Alex Anderson

by Sylvia J. Thomas

Paducah, Kentucky – October 5, 2009: The American Quilter’s Society is proud to announce the creation of a new magazine with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. “The Quilt Life” is scheduled to premiere in April 2010 with six issues per year.

According to Ricky Tims, if you are someone who understands that quilting is a way of life, “you’ll find our new magazine, ‘The Quilt Life,’ has been created with you in mind.”

Issue one of “The Quilt Life” will focus on inspiration and how it compels a quilter to start a new project. You will find articles from quilt artists who reveal the sources of their inspiration and share the techniques and patterns they use to create works of art. Popular quilter/teacher/author/judge Libby Lehman will write a regular column featuring tips and entertaining stories about her quilt life.

As editor-in-chief, Jan Magee is proud to be “working with the cream of the quilting industry crop–Ricky, Alex, and AQS!”

Join Ricky, Alex, Jan and AQS in this new adventure and celebrate living The Quilt Life. Take a look at the special preview and see why you won’t want to miss becoming a charter subscriber. (Read more…)

“It’s about inspiration, creativity, community, charity, and so much more,” explains Alex Anderson. “When the American Quilter’s Society invited Ricky and me to create a brand new magazine, the spin was easy. Welcome to the pages of ‘The Quilt Life,’ where quilting is more than making a quilt. Let our creative lifestyle continue…together.”
