Free-Style Quilts: A "No Rules" Approach

Inspired by her love of fabric, Susan Carlson developed an approach to fabric collage that ultimately resulted in astonishing pictorial fabric art of richly layered textures and patterns. Her superb draftsmanship and masterful sense of color yields quilts more akin to painting than piecework. Luckily, she is just as expert at explaining her methods to others as she is at using them herself; the result is a book filled with crisp color images of her own work as well as some by her students, along with well-written text that details everything quilters need to know to start using her techniques. Rather than present specific how-tos to duplicate her designs, she teaches readers all her secrets so they can create their own designs, using her amazing works as inspiration. --Amy Handy

The Art of Classic Quiltmaking

If you're tired of making "recipe" quilts that simply duplicate what someone else has designed, and you're ready to take charge of planning your own quilts, you'll find the help you need in this excellent reference. Overflowing with solid, practical advice on equipment, fabrics, cutting, basic quilt-block settings, yardage calculation, piecing strategies, even setting up a wonderful workspace, The Art of Classic Quiltmaking aims to allay the trepidations of quilters who long to expand control over their quilting endeavors. With lucid text, hundreds of clear diagrams, and lovely color photos of both antique quilts and their own work, the authors demystify such intimidating concepts as drafting your own patterns, reducing what many quilters fear is a complex mathematical exercise into a more approachable series of simple calculations. Although the authors provide no step-by-step projects (this would, after all, defeat their stated purpose to teach quilters to think for themselves), they do offer detailed explanations on constructing several basic patterns, set-in and curved-seam piecing, quilting the completed product, and finishing techniques. In other words, if you've got a bit of quilt-making experience and want to make a more personal statement with your creations, this volume will show you how to go from raw material to a finished quilt you can be truly proud of. --Amy Handy

Better Homes and Gardens 501 Quilt Blocks: A Treasury of Patterns for Patchwork and Applique

Subtitled A Treasury of Patterns for Patchwork & Appliqué, this comprehensive book is just that--250 pages of pattern-block diagrams accompanied by concise construction directions and small color photos of the made-up blocks in well-chosen colors. In addition, a prelimary chapter gives instructions for about 15 projects, and a tips and techniques section outlines the basics for making the blocks and the projects. Whether your tastes run to the more traditional (nine-patch, star, basket, or pineapple variations, among many others) or the more experimental (appliquéd orchids, cacti, or heraldic designs, for example), you're likely to find something of interest here.

Painting

Drawing

Sculpture

Painting is the practice of applying pigment suspended in a carrier (or medium) and a binding agent (a glue) to a surface (support) such as paper, canvas or a wall.

Drawing is one of many ways to making an image; it is the process of making marks on a surface by applying pressure from or moving a tool on the surface. These marks may represent what the artist sees when drawing, a remembered or imagined scene or abstraction.

Sculpture is any three-dimensional form created as an artistic expression. Sculpture is primarily concerned with space: occupying it, relating to it, and influencing the perception of it.
