    Mediums for all types of materials

    When I first looked at the book, I thought there wouldn't be much that I would use as a great part of it pertains to other mediums than I use. After more in-depth reading, I found several ideas that will "translate" to my favorite medium, quilting!

    In the general supplies and equipment section, I learned more about stabilizers which will help me in my machine embroidery. You will also find information on fusible web which is great for regular sewing or quilting.

    In the projects section, I found out how to create fabric that looks like basket weave and tic-tac-toe tucks. These will make wonderful quilt squares. You can even make "bubble" fabric with a cooling rack, a chop stick and fabric. Of course, there is the traditional crazy quilt block but I learned a new one, called deconstructed crazy quilting. This is similar to crazy quilting but there are raw edges and wild threads.

    Thread painting, needle felting, foiling beading, couching stamping are just a few of the mediums I don't usually use but the instructions for creating with these mediums are clear and easy to follow. There are plenty of graphics and even extra tips in colored boxes.

    There are two pages about the four authors and a page on where to find the materials used in the book. Best of all, the book is bound with a wire-ring binder so it will lay flat without having to worry about breaking the binding.
