NANCY ZIEMAN & N. SEWELL    Book Number: 92966    Product format: Paperback

Unleash your creativity and create stunning fabric paintings and gorgeous landscape quilts without patterns or measurements. Select the best nature fabrics for your background from hand-dyed to floral, foliage to rock fabrics. Inspirational scenes are everywhere from greetings cards to magazine photographs, your own photo collection or back garden. Your scene may be the garden and the bird bath, a September woodland, water, sky, mountains and snow, combining fabrics with dark bias vines to recreate the effect of stained glass and maybe some tumbling lilac coloured Wisteria. Create still-life flower quilts such as Monet's Sunflowers or Bonnard's Poppies with their bright yellows and reds, a beautiful grapevine, a bright white picket fence with colourful flowers and leaves cascading over, a rock garden, waterlilies, poppies. Create a horizon line in water scenes or create a close up woodland scene - the possibilities are endless. Beginning with all the tools and basic techniques, cutting and gluing, machine stitching the quilt top, squaring up and adding borders right through to finishing touches of layering and stitching and binding and blocking and of course fixing mistakes, you are in the hands of experts. Special import, 144 page outsize softback, packed with colour photos.
