Good Morning, Quilters!
We are on a blog hop today! For those of you unfamiliar with the term—a blog hop is like a ten-day progressive party. Every day for ten days, we are invited to stop by a new friend’s house (or blog) for some refreshments, a little conversation, a few party games and in this case a GIVEAWAY!
Often a blog hop, like a progressive party, is a way to celebrate something. In this case, we are celebrating Quilt-Artist-Extraordinaire, Deborah Boschert’s new book, Art Quilt Collage.
A REFERENCE BOOK OF TECHNIQUES
I am really excited to share this book with you because it contains so many fresh ideas about quilting. It is a technique book, chock full of inspiration.
Now don’t get excited over the word “Art Quilt”–I know it intimidates many…This book is packed with ideas on how to add interest to any quilt, whether it is a small collage for framing or a king size quilt for your bed.
ART QUILT COLLAGE BOOK CHAT

Deborah offers a clear path of how to transform an inspiration (like a photo or a word) into a quilt. There are machine quilting and hand embroidery tips, design and composition suggestions,(including a design checklist), and a very interesting chapter on personal symbols.
I was really intrigued by the chapter on Finishing which include several options for edge treatments as well as a variety of ways to mount or hang a quilt. (I’m thinking some of my “Vase Quilts” might become mounted or framed “Art work”!)
