Explore this groundbreaking book that shows quilters how to create unique and expressive quilts by going beyond conventional patchwork using improvisational collage techniques and fusing.
Author Bethan Ash, known for her rich and colorful quilt designs, shows how to use hand and machine stitching as a final embellishment to the quilted piece. Learn to instinctively cut fabric shapes without the use of rulers or templates, layer them on a prepared background, and attach them with fusible web. Once the fabrics are secured by fusing, you're free to use more or less stitching as a final embellishment.
In clear, easy-to-follow text, discover invaluable information on methods, materials, techniques, and composition. Illustrated with many of Bethan's quilts and additional examples of state-of-the-art fused quilts from around the world, this book is a visual feast of color and pattern. Artistic influences are evident throughout, from Matisse's bright paper cutouts to pop art and mid-century design.
Vibrant Quilt Collage will help you expand the boundaries of art quilting through imagination, inspiration, and fusion.
