Transform a Quilt with Hand Stitching by Laura Wasilowski

Hand stitching can take a flat, uninteresting quilt top and bring the quilt surface to life. Discover different hand sewing techniques and add color, texture and pattern to the surface of your art quilts. Quilting stitches form detailed marks that cannot be made with fabric. When sewing fabric, the embroidered quilting stitch also helps define fabric shapes, provides a focal point, and most importantly, draws the viewer closer. Wasilowski uses hand stitching in four basic ways to enhance quilt tops: she places quilting stitches on geometric pieced backgrounds; adds them to a wholecloth quilt without any machine stitching; places them on a fused composition and adds machine stitching later; or puts hand stitches on a completed quilt, machine-stitched quilt. Wasilowski’s sewing tips include improvisational embroidery, which is hand stitching without a plan, without a pattern or drawing to follow. Stitch choices and placement are designed as you go, with one stitch building on another. Follow Wasilowski’s detailed sewing instructions and discover new sewing ideas, dive into improvisational embroidery, and enhance your hand stitching abilities, all in this free eBook.

Thread Painting 101 by Terry White

Variegated, colored cotton threads are toys for thread painters. The many effects one can achieve by paying some attention to the color changes are magical. The mix of these threads can add complexity and interest to a simple shape. Knowledge of basic thread painting and machine quilting is required to follow White’s sewing instructions. Be prepared to find yourself thrilled with what you can create. If you feel like you may need to practice your stitchery with various threads before you begin your thread painting project, a great way to practice is by making free-motion stitch samplers. Just draw some simple shapes and begin to stitch. This can show you what looks good, what doesn’t and the end result could possibly be the new focal point in your upcoming project. Take your sewing machine techniques to a whole new level and begin thread painting your newest masterpiece.
