Editorial Reviews

Mary Lowe
Judi is the only teacher who made me feel like a successful art quilter. She guided us, questioned us and allowed us to develop our own interpretation.
Martin Fay
Most recent books on art quiltmaking concentrate on surface design and embellishment techniques. By contrast, collage+cloth=quilt gets back to the basics in art quiltmaking, guiding the student to focus on those aspects of a piece that make it artful—composition, line, value, color. By manipulating my own images into a pleasing and meaningful collage composition, using fabric in all its richness as the interpretive medium, and with Judi's guidance as a master art teacher, both conceptually and technically, I was able to produce a piece that went beyond my expectations. Having experienced the workshop and Judi's masterful teaching I feel more confident in my ability to actually produce an artful quilt. Judi's workshop taught me a new way of seeing and thinking about the art of quiltmaking and my abilities to successfully engage in it.
Carol Gilham
Judi's process, solidly grounded in classic design principles yet fluidly accommodating of different aesthetics, fosters extraordinary creativity. She teaches you how to design a quilt by combining elements and images from your own photographs. Thus, the quilt you make is a purely individual expression of your own composition as well as of your fabric and finishing choices.
Quilting Arts Magazine
The idea for this book was hatched after author Judi Warren Blaydon felt the urge to crate a quilt that represented the paper collages she had been making. Subsequently, Collage + Cloth = Quilt guides readers thought the process of making a paper collage our of photos, sketches, magazine clippings, and anything else that might appeal, and then shows how to translate this paper collage into a on-of-a kind fabric quilt. Written for collage beginners and veterans alike, this book is informative and useful no matter your sill set. Instead of dictating specific projects, Blaydon leads readers through the general steps for turning paper collages into unique quilts; individuals are encouraged to create work that speaks to them personally, and to let the art evolve from there. If you are looking for a new way to quilt, or to combine your love of collage with the world of quilting, this is a great guide.
From the Publisher
This is a technique book for any quilter and it will encourage you to look for texture, shape, and color when you take photographs for inspirational use. It teaches you how to spot unusual vantage points, indicate details, varied patterns and complex elements in your photography. The other valuable lesson is how to select fabrics that work with your composition and make the whole cohesive composition. This is an excellent and innovative resource book for the art quilter.—Fabrications (12/10)
