Expanding creative horizons, this colorful and inspiring guide takes the popular craft of quilting and elevates it to an art form with stunning visual appeal. It outlines a technique for hand dying that uses no powdered dyes, no caustic chemicals, and no rinsing: just color, visual texture, and immediate gratification. With a variety of easy methods---including solid dying, shading, tie dying, folding, drip painting, and masking---quilters will soon be on their way to making colorful quilts and wall hangings, table runners, placemats, pot holders, trivets, pincushions, and pillows. The 20 projects and patterns are simple enough for the beginner, yet engaging enough to thrill the more advanced.
