I just noticed that Sharon posted a link to this blog on her blog. Thanks so much, Sharon. I figured I should have something for all of you textile artists coming to visit. Just today at the library I picked up Lesley Riley's new book Quilted Memories. Click on the title for a fabulous interview with Lesley on HeartsART radio. You can listen online. Also check out her web site and new blog! This book is just yummy!!! Lesley is awe inspiring. She includes lots of her fabulous work, plus tips on design, color, and style. I think I may have to buy this one. The pictures are amazing! Makes me want to run out to the fabric store. The other book I got is Jan Bode Smiley's The Art of Fabric Books. This book goes into detail about making fabric books, pockets, envelopes, you name it! It's filled with lots of ideas and techniques. It includes some projects similar to the altered fabric book I made for my son when he was an infant. You can see lots more if you follow the link to MY ART on the side bar. Thanks for visiting!
