The Professional Quilter
I have been a fan of Marcia Stein's quilts for a long time. We even put one of her quilts on the cover of Issue 100 of The Professional Quilter. It's the same quilt that graces the cover of her first book. Subtitled Applique Pictorial Quilts - From Photo to Fabric, this book starts with how to take better photos, how to choose the right photo for a quilt and then how to use your computer to look at the photos to determine value among other things. From here you'll learn how to transfer your photo to a master drawing that you'll use to select your fabric and create your quilt. Marcia covers three different methods of applique: turn-under, fused or raw-edge. In addition to a gallery of photos, you'll find three projects with detailed instructions to develop and build your skills. If you are looking to learn the technique behind creating realistic pictorial applique quilts, this is an excellent resource.
