The Art of Mixing Textiles in Quilts contains a diverse mix of projects; size, style and use. The book will first introduce you to alternative textures that you might never have considered suitable for quilting projects. The introductory pages, dedicated to exploring new textiles, will give you tips and tricks to make the process easy and successful. If you are leery of adding Home Decor and silk fabrics to your larger quilt projects try it first in a pincushion, a needle case or one of our most popular patterns, the Market Tote bag.
Once you've mastered these fabrics in smaller scale projects using the detailed instructions for the Umbrian Fields Needlecase and Dividends Pincushion projects, consider taking on the Echoes of Italy Bolster, Echoes of Italy Runner or Bohemian Dance! The book offers a variety of ways to play with these new found textiles; pincushions to Queen size tops. Explore the depth of color and texture that only alternative textiles can lend to your projects. It's a whole new world!!
