From Composition to Finished Piece
This first title in the Create with Nancy series teaches you how to identify an appropriate photo for an art quilt, then translate that image into a fabric collage and finally how to accent and/or embellish the art using thread painting, raw-edge machine appliqué, and more. Author Leni Levenson Wiener provides fifteen exercises that are designed to help you develop the different skills required and understand the various artistic concepts needed to create art quilts of your own design. Bonus sidebars and notes from Nancy Zieman provide additional tips and tricks. The Bonus DVD, hosted by Nancy Zieman, shows a variety of the construction approaches in action.
