Photo Album QuiltsBook - 2008 | 1st ed.
What do quilting and photography have in common? Both are time-honored ways of preserving cherished memories--and they both come together in a very special one-of-a-kind volume. Written by popular quilt designer Wendy Butler Berns, it shows how to incorporate your most precious pictures, from beloved snapshots of ancestors to children's artwork, into a unique quilt. Anyone, from beginners to confident, experienced quilters can master the creative techniques, which include creating a line-drawn template from the enlarged original image, breaking down the dark and light tones, choosing the fabrics for each piece of the design, then reassembling and appliqu#65533;ing the image onto a backing. The 25 quilts are all perfect for hangings, and each is shown with the photo that inspired it.
