    Painter and Quilter projects

    This book caught my eye as my niece is a painter and I am a quilter. The projects in this book are something that she and I can do together.

    The first step is to get your "picture" onto fabric. Once you have accomplished that (and the instructions on how to do this are provided), you then need to do the thread work. One way that I can't wait to try is to draw, for example, a leaf onto water soluble stabilizer. In a pinch hoop, place a piece of tulle with the stabilizer over it. This makes a "free standing" leaf that you can sew onto your quilt or wall hanging. I think I will be daring enough to try to do it direction on my finished item - thus saving one sewing step.

    Each project has a photo of the item, a finished size, techniques used and a skill level. The directions for completing the item are clear and have graphics to show you in greater detail the steps being described.

    The book contains five projects: three wall hangings, a quilt and a table runner with matching napkins. This last item would be a great place to start as it is smaller and more manageable. I can't wait to call my niece and give the projects in this book a try.
