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.

Painting with Fabric

Creating Art with Fabric Collage and Landscape Quilting

Painting With Fabric is Jeanine Malaney's technique of creating artworks with fabric utilizing fabric collage, raw edge appliqué and free-motion quilting. This is a How-To book using this technique which will allow you to paint a picture with fabric! It's not a is not painting on fabric, though Jeanine does utilize paints minimally for shading or highlighting; rather, this is creating a "painting" with the medium of fabric instead of paint! Soooooo fun and less threatening than using paints. Jeanine's technique is basically fabric collage, enhanced with sewing techniques (raw-edge appliqué and free-motion quilting). She cuts fabric pieces and compose a collage by gluing and rearranging pieces on a background fabric she call my "canvas”. After college, Jeanine may add shading and detail features with fabric paint. She then secures the image with clear or smoke monofilament thread. After squaring up she may add fabric borders, then she layers with backing and batting. With a quilting process you can then increase texture and highlight features creating a three-dimensional effect. You can then produce your own continuous binding to match or compliment borders. Each unique piece should be titled, signed, and framed. Fundamental to this technique is a process of finding an inspiration, establishing a design based on the elements of artistic composition, selecting appropriate fabrics, collage layering, free-motion quilting, use of paint for detail and shading, and finishing touches for a professional look (borders, squaring, binding, labeling). All steps are explained and illustrated in detail in the book. Also included are design tips for skies and water, for mountains, rocks and cliffs, for foliage and trees, figures and buildings. Many examples from photo inspiration to a finished fabric collage “painting” are provided in this book. This technique is for the artist who wants to create original and unique fabric collages, one-of-a-kind watercolor or landscape quilts, and without the purchase of any kind of kit. You can even use the fabric that already exists in your stash and your existing sewing setup.
