Overview

Scrapbooking and quilting are each two-billion-dollar industries: combine them and you have a collection that will fly off the shelves!

A scrapbook gets put away; a quilt goes on display—perhaps framed and hung, or draped over the couch. These 24 original quilts incorporate the same treasured photos and memorabilia that normally go into a scrapbook, but in a unique format. They’re fun to make, too, thanks to the many innovative techniques that are easy for a beginner and refreshingly new to the experienced quilter. Direct-print favorite pictures onto fabric with an ink-jet printer. Tea-dye material to make it look antique, creating a perfect background for vintage photos. Extensive opening sections on art and design basics provide a plethora of invaluable tips.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Quilting and scrapbooking merge in this idea book for anyone wishing to capture his or her memories or thoughts in fabric. Riley, who has six children and a life in business unrelated to her art, coaches the reluctant artist and speaks from experience when she discusses how to fit art into even the busiest lives. She starts by outlining the principles of design and color, then encourages the reader to embark on a visual journal and complete a variety of mind-expanding exercises. Among the topics covered are fabric collecting, photo transferring, overdyeing, painting, stamping and stenciling, storytelling, and alternative techniques for changing the color and texture of fabric and for finishing quilts. She includes 24 illustrative scrapbook quilt projects with information on the materials and methods used to create each, plus color photos of the finished pieces. Recommended for public libraries, especially where there is interest in quilting and scrapbooking. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
