Do you remember the fun of playing with new crayons, fresh out of the box, when you were a little kid? There is a new quilting book out that I think will give you that childhood excitement and open up the door to new forms of quilting for you with fun and easy techniques that will help you create beautiful results.
"Creative Quilts From Your Crayon Box: Melt-n-Blend Meets Fusible Applique'", by Terrie Linn Kygar and published by Martingale/That Patchwork Place is a perfect book for quilters of all interest (art, traditional, contemporary) and all levels (beginners, intermediate, advanced).
Are you wondering what the Melt Blend technique is? Watch this video:
Isn't this an amazing technique that produces brilliant results?
Learn to use crayons, markers, colored pencils and more to create designs on fabric to make beautiful and unique quilts. Insights are shared on supplies, preparing Applique' for Coloring, Learning to Color, and Assembling and Finishing your Quilt. There are also four easy to follow instructions for six different coloring exercises.
The possibilities of what you can create with insights from this book are truly endless!
There are seven delightful projects in this book that range in size from 11"x12" to 28 x 30", each with easy to follow instructions and great visuals.
And, there is a Quilt Gallery which includes photos and insights on many spectacular quilts made by Terrie Kygar, that are all inspirational!
SewCalGal recommends this book as a "must have" book for anyone interested in learning techniques for creating your own quilted pieces of art using crayons, colored pencils, and markers.
I hope you get a chance to check out this book at your local quilt store or at the online store for Martingale & Company. I think you'll have fun creating with this book!
