Using colorful fabric scraps as your canvas, and paints, needles and threads for brushes, author-artist Janet Bolton shows you how to compose beautiful works of patchwork fold art. Every fascinating step of picture making is covered, with plenty of watercolor illustrations and eye-catching examples of Janet's extraordinary work to inspire you. Readers can put their new skills to practice with a workshop at the end of each chapter. From fabric selection and composition, to exciting techniques for free-hand cutting and stitching, to choosing the perfect finishing touches and frame, she makes the entire process seem easy.
Full-size templates are provided allowing the reader to reproduce the wonderfully charming floral still life and farmyard schemes. Those who prefer to use their imagination to create completely original pictures will find all the guidance, inspiration and helpful hints they need.
