A huge contemporary trend in the industry, mixed media is taken to a new level here with a unique combination of watercolors, pen and ink illustrations, needlework design, and more. The montage effect, taught in this volume, begins with a computer-edited image that is transformed into grafted patterns and then enhanced with crazy quilting, manipulated fabrics, embellishments, dye, and embroidery techniques. The friendly prose and enthusiastic, straightforward instructions take readers step by step through the process to achieve texture and depth in fabric landscape quilts while full-color, stunning photographs accent this guide to the newest mixed media techniques in the world of quilting.
