Stitching to Dye in Quilt Art: Colour, Texture and Distortion



Author: C. June Barnes

One of today’s most innovative quilt artists reveals her trademark techniques in published form for the first time–complete with step-by-step exercises. C. June Barnes’s unique method of creating quilts in neutral fabric and then dyeing them has revolutionized quilt art. Similarly, her work on texture and particularly distortion (through shrinkage) of the surface has taken quilt design to a new level. She discusses it all here, from coloring to embellishing, plus fun projects. Fantastically illustrated with photos of the finished pieces, as well as drawings and illustrations of the methods, this is a book no quilter should be without!
