Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Newman is an award-winning artist who uses hand-dyed fabrics, thread, bleach, ink, and paint to create larger-than-life applique art quilts. One of her most striking pieces is an 82" by 98" depiction of a clump of geraniums seen by the viewer at eye level. Although Newman includes an instructional design that the reader may use to learn bleaching and fabric-painting techniques, she has not produced a project book. Instead, she writes of her design philosophy, the steps she goes through to plan an art quilt, how she chooses color and manipulates fabrics, and how she completes the final quilt assembly. A worthwhile choice for larger subject collections.

This is a good overview of her method of working with acrylic paints on fabric. I have tried a couple of her projects with members of our quilt guild. I would suggest following her instructions for working of a wet surface to obtain desired results. The fabric is easy to thread paint & quilt.

I had been looking for this book for several years, using my local library's copy frequently. Ms Newman's innovative art plus her excellent descriptions inspire me. So happy to have my own copy to refer to whenever I want.
