Creative Quilts: Inspration, Texture & Stitch

The book I have been longing for, has been delivered today:

From Books

In "Creative Quilts: Inspration, Texture & Stitch" the artist Sandra Meech shows you how to take inspiration from art, architecture and world textiles.

The book contains instructions for techniques like surface embellishment, mixed-media and three dimensional quilt work. The artist also gives practical advice on exhibiting work. In a nutshell:

The hardcovered book which is illustrated with work from the world's leading quilt and textile artists and clear drawings, offers lots of design exercises and gives special emphasis to journals and sketchbooks.

Both a practical workbook and a precious source of inspiration, the book is best digested in small bites. This weekend I first will enjoy just looking at the photographs and drawings. Thank you for your visit!
