Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This first collaboration by quilting teacher/lecturer Walter (Sensations: Fast, Fusible Fabric Art for Quilted or Framed Projects) and quilt judge/curator Graves (Visions: Quilts Layers of Excellence) is broken down into three sections. The first is an essay on the evolution of quilting techniques and tools from the 1970s to the present based on interviews with modern movers and shakers in the quilting field. The second includes a dozen step-by-step projects illustrating contemporary quilting techniques such as continuous free-motion line quilting, photo transfer, free-piecing, fabric painting, fabric fusing, and beading. The third and largest section is an annotated gallery of award-winning quilts showcasing these contemporary quilting techniques. Each quilt is pictured in a full-page, full-color photograph. Recommended for large public libraries and subject collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
