Even if, like me, you don’t think of yourself as an “Art Quilter” you will find some wonderful inspiring ideas in this new e-book by Lisa Walton, released earlier this month.
The book description says:
This book guides you through the ways in which you can turn beautiful patterns and textures into stunning textiles.
The first in a series of books titled ‘Creative Journeys’, Lisa Walton imparts expert guidance, tips and techniques coupled with over 140 illustrations to help inspire and encourage you to turn your ideas into creative textiles.
With a focus on fabric painting, stamping, decorative rubbings, metallic foils, simple screen printing, stencilling, creative stitchwork, textural quilting, Lisa shows how these can be used to create stunning textile art.
You can preview, and purchase, the book: Creative Journeys: Fun & Easy Textile Surface Design Techniques
It is Lisa’s second book, and is only available in the digital book format.
Visit Lisa’s blog to find out how this book came to be, and follow the story as the next book in the Creative Journeys series is developed.
PS: Her first book, “Beautiful Building Block Quilts”, is available in both print and digital format and shows you how to start with an easy quilt block like Four Patch or Flying Geese, stitch it up in several different sizes, then build your blocks into striking improvised quilts.
They make a great set to get you started on your free wheeling creative journey.
