Library Journal Review

Becker is a textile artist and quilter whose special interest is richly embellished landscape quilts. She is also a natural teacher who can take what appears to be a very complex process and break it down into step-by-step instructions. Here she shows readers how to create tapestry-like quilted landscape pieces using a canvas of stabilized muslin adorned with fabrics, machine embroidery, and textile paints. She includes ample information on designing the quilts plus a selection of ten projects designed for beginners to the technique. This book is surely a keeper and is enthusiastically recommended for large public libraries and art textile collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
