Step by Step Portrait Art Quilts: Learn to Create Realistic Portrait and Pictorial Quilts
Step by Step Portrait Art Quilts takes you by the hand through every step of creating your own unique art quilt. This book is complete with detailed instructions on how to choose the proper photograph, make your custom pattern, select the best fabrics, create your quilt top, and complete your heirloom portrait or pictorial quilt.
You do not have to be an expert quilter or a computer whiz to do any of the steps, and no drawing skills are required. If you know how to create and save a file and sew a zig zag stitch, you have the experience required to craft an extraordinarily beautiful memory in cloth.
In-depth instructions are included for three different image editing software applications: Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, & Gimp—which is free. The book includes ample photos and screen shots of palettes and dialogue boxes. Whether you prefer a PC or MAC you can easily follow the step–by–step instructions in this book.
You’ll happily combine the technical aspects of creating your custom pattern with the relaxing aspect of quilting and if you prefer one–on–one help, Margaret offers an online class to accompany the book.
