Thread art is not simply sewing. There are many techniques for doing this from quite a few books I have been reviewing. Here are my favorite books that travel with me:
Landscape Quilts by Nancy Zieman and Natalie Sewell published by Oxmoore House. To summarize, their technique is clipping images from printed fabrics, glueing to specialty fabric backing, machine applique and embellished quilting. Much more to that.
Lovely Landscape Quilts by Cathy Geier, published by Fons & Porter. Their description is “Using strings & Scraps to piece and applique scenic quilts.” Summary: Beautiful pictures but missing basic instructions to getting started. Very dependent on having expensive specialty fabrics. The strip quilting section is interesting and I plan trying it in the future.
Stitched Textiles: Landscapes, by Kathleen Matthews by Search Press. www.searchpress.com. Summary: I love this book. Truly thread art, all the information is here to get started in using a sewing machine and “free motion quilting” techniques to create textile art you can frame.
