This book is not on painting techniques, but about putting a quilt together and taking it through to completion after the top has been made.
In this book, I share many of the techniques and materials I use in my work. Covering the different battings I prefer and why, my fool-proof basting technique, different ways to think about stitching designs and motifs for quilting, and how I mark a top before stitching. I’ve never been a fan of traditional bindings on art quilts and I share three alternative bindings and show you how to gallery wrap a quilt on stretcher bars, all with step by step directions.
