Overview

Nationally known quilter and mixed-media artist Lesley Riley showcases her own work and that of other well-known designers in a series of unique memory books—all made out of fabric. Scrapbookers will discover to their delight that fabric can do things that paper cannot, and they’ll get instructions on printing and transferring photos; a range of binding techniques for all skill levels; and ideas for incorporating both hand and machine sewing. Riley explains how to make an unbound book, alter an existing one, and create special features like accordion folds and button joints. Among the 24 imaginative projects: a painted fabric scroll; an old-world style canvas travelogue with richly textured brocades, ribbons, and images from classical art; and a machine-stitched collage "Starbook.”
