Overview

Designed with both the hand and the machine quilter in mind, this thorough look at ways to paint, bead, trim, and stitch embellishments onto finished quilts brings together diverse media for the experienced quilter. Modern as well as time-honored materials are used to create new works of fabric art. Hundreds of ideas are presented, using techniques including paint and paint sticks, burnishing, beads and buttons, ribbons, tassels, and embroidery. Prep steps for all methods and post-project care are also covered. An "Idea Gallery" at the end of each chapter is not prescriptive—the projects are jumping-off places for quilters looking to add color, texture, and pizzazz to their repertoire. The emphasis is on creativity, making the book an enduring source of future inspiration.
