The Art Quilt Portrait Issue
This issue of Quilting Arts explores a variety of techniques for creating portraits in cloth, and offers tips for both the beginner and experienced fiber artist.
Ready to create portrait in quilts? If you enjoy sketching or painting your subjects first, you might try the techniques described by Sharon Hendry in our Off the Page series. Pauline Salzman, known for creating pet portraits, shares her easy technique using a photograph as a guide for people portraits. And for all of those thread sketching and machine quilting enthusiasts, Melissa Averinos demonstrates how to use a sewing machine as a drawing tool.
Highlights of this magazine include:
"What all of these artists have in common is a love for the human face, and the desire to perfect their method of interpreting those faces in fabric. I’m looking forward to trying these techniques at home, and have just organized my threads, oiled my machine, and found the lost free-motion quilting foot so I can get started."
