Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Like many of C&T's offerings, Skydyes takes an easygoing tutorial approach to teach quilters new aspects of their craft. Known for her beautiful hand-painted cotton fabrics, Lawler here teaches the art of fabric painting to those who would rather paint their own than buy custom-painted fabric. Once supplies and equipment, fabric preparation, and painting techniques have been covered, the reader is led step-by-step through a series of landscape painting exercises illustrating each technique. All of the exercises are then pieced into an abstract landscape quilt that will serve as a permanent reference for the aspiring fabric painter. An excellent resource list and inspiring full-color photos of unique landscape quilts add to the value of this title. An excellent choice for any library collecting in this area.
