Art quilts are all about experimenting -- using new and exciting techniques, fun and unusual supplies, and coloring variations. This book from Banar Designs will show you how to create your very own, whether you're an experienced quilter, a paper artist, or a beginning crafter. Just follow the step-by-step photos and instructions to learn easy sewing and quilting techniques, fast and fun fabric dyeing and painting, photo transferring, embellishing, hand and machine embroidery, free-motion stitching, rubber stamping, velvet stamping, and more. There also are some Artist Trading Card and postcard quilts shown. Browse the gallery of example art quilts demonstrating various techniques, then get out your fabric scraps, buttons, ribbons, and whatever you have on hand. You'll see how much fun it can be to express yourself with fabric.
