Ok, so you’ve been quilting for yonks and are looking for another different avenue to explore. You still want to play with fabric, but are itching to try new techniques that don’t cost a fortune or take a life time to achieve. Art Quilts and particularly small art quilts are the way to go.

Leisure arts have recently published a great book titled Beginner’s Guide to Art Quilts. It’s been written by Banar Designs. They have an interesting website –

This publication is a terrific introduction to the idea of art quilting – and takes you on a step by step journey showing very easy techniques for fabric manipulation, fat and fun fabric dyeing, techniques for including photographs in your art quilts, all manner of embellishing and also comes with a huge very inspirational gallery of Art Quilts.

Credit goes to the writers who have managed to simplify the instructions for developing the techniques outlined in this book. There are many interesting technique instructions to explore and great instructional diagrams and photographs that accompany the instructions.

The table of contents really is a roll call of all the art quilt techniques you’ll require to be able to achieve a great creation. Chapters include Hand and Machine Stitching, Photo Transferring, Sewing and Quilting, Coloring Fabric, Gold Leafing & Rubber Stamping and Sprays, Crayons and Tea Staining.

There’s something here for everyone. Learn a few or learn the lot – you’re going to enjoy hours of play fun and develop some really useful skills that will see you on your Art Quilt journey. Who knows where it might take you.
