Picture your World in Appliqué
Creating Unique Images With FabricUnknown - 2005
Picture Your World in Appliqué shows crafters how to take the memories and images they want to preserve and turn them into beautiful appliquéd pictures that will last a lifetime--and beyond. Author Margaret Cusack is renowned for her powerful, colourful portraits and illustrations, all created with machine--stitched appliqué. For the first time, she shares her techniques for creating realistic, often nostalgic pictures that capture a moment in time, a magnificent landscape, or a beloved face. From gathering tools and supplies, to choosing, cutting, and assembling fabrics in a composition, to adding finishing touches such as stitching or quilting, Picture Your World in Appliqué shows exactly how to create richly evocative works of art that will be cherished for generations.
