Photo-Inspired Art Quilts: From Composition to Finished Piece

An art quilt is a unique and original work of art done in fabric, layered with batting and backed just like a traditional quilt. Most often, they are made to hang on a wall as decoration. In this book, learn how to identify an appropriate photo for an art quilt, how to translate that photo into a fabric collage, and how to accent and/or embellish it using thread painting, raw-edge machine applique and fabric collage. A bonus DVD hosted by Nancy Zieman compliments the instruction featured in the book.
