Painting With Fabric is Jeanine Malaney's technique of creating artworks with fabric utilizing fabric collage, raw edge appliqué and free-motion quilting. This is a How-To book using this technique which will allow you to paint a picture with fabric! It's not a typo...it is not painting on fabric, though Jeanine does utilize paints minimally for shading or highlighting; rather, this is creating a "painting" with the medium of fabric instead of paint! Soooooo fun and less threatening than using paints. Jeanine's technique is basically fabric collage, enhanced with sewing techniques (raw-edge appliqué and free-motion quilting). She cuts fabric pieces and compose a collage by gluing and rearranging pieces on a background fabric she call my "canvas”. After college, Jeanine may add shading and detail features with fabric paint. She then secures the image with clear or smoke monofilament thread. After squaring up she may add fabric borders, then she layers with backing and batting. With a quilting process you can then increase texture and highlight features creating a three-dimensional effect. You can then produce your own continuous binding to match or compliment borders. Each unique piece should be titled, signed, and framed. Fundamental to this technique is a process of finding an inspiration, establishing a design based on the elements of artistic composition, selecting appropriate fabrics, collage layering, free-motion quilting, use of paint for detail and shading, and finishing touches for a professional look (borders, squaring, binding, labeling). All steps are explained and illustrated in detail in the book. Also included are design tips for skies and water, for mountains, rocks and cliffs, for foliage and trees, figures and buildings. Many examples from photo inspiration to a finished fabric collage “painting” are provided in this book. This technique is for the artist who wants to create original and unique fabric collages, one-of-a-kind watercolor or landscape quilts, and without the purchase of any kind of kit. You can even use the fabric that already exists in your stash and your existing sewing setup.

Kaffe Fassett has led an extraordinary life and is a captivating storyteller with a vivid memory. Born in 1937, he spent much of his youth in Big Sur, California, where his parents bought a cabin from Orson Welles and transformed it into the world-famous Nepenthe restaurant, a gathering place for artists and bohemians. After attending a boarding school run by the disciples of Krishnamurti, an Indian guru, he studied painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, then traveled to England, where he made his home. After an inspiring trip to Inverness, Scotland, Fassett began designing knitwear for Bill Gibb, and then the Missonis, Vogue magazine, and private clients like Lauren Bacall and Barbra Streisand, and, in the process, revolutionized the handknitting world with his explosive use of color. Further explorations led him to needlepoint, mosaics, rugmaking, tapestries, yarn and fabric design, costume and set design, and quilting. Now in his seventies, Fassett continues to produce new work and to travel worldwide to teach and lecture. In this intimate autobiography, Fassett shares rich, detailed stories about his lifelong creative journey as well as hundreds of glorious photos taken along the way. Praise for Kaffe Fassett: Dreaming in Color: “Kaffe Fassett is to color what Julia Child was to French cooking.” —Knitters Review “Lavishly illustrated with photographs from his life and work and dishing on everyone from Dustin Hoffman to Princess Margaret, Dreaming in Color describes a charmed life filled with creativity, big personalities, travels and not a little serendipity.” —Vogue Knitting “Shapes and patterns are everywhere; they lie waiting for the person who wants to see them. It's the bricolage aspect behind his work and, arguably, Fassett himself: arranging disparate things to create something dynamic and new.” —Vogue Knitting “This book would be a beautiful gift to receive or give. It is like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.” —Examiner.com “A glance through his new autobiography shows that this is a man who, in design terms, hit the ground running and has never stopped.” —Selvedge magazine “Dreaming in Color, lavishly illustrated with 500 color pictures, is a feast for the eyes.” —Shelf Awareness “Reading this book is like peeling an orange on a gray winter’s day—every single one of your senses is sparked as you get sprayed with infectious creativity.” —Knitty.com “Kaffe Fassett is a luminary in the world of textiles and knitting, spreading the gospel of color in his books and travels.” —The Houston Chronicle “It is a beautiful book, no question. Beautifully designed, thoughtfully composed, well-written, Kaffe takes you on his creative journey. We all—quilters, knitters, needlepointers, and just plain art lovers—are indeed very fortunate that he would share all of this with the world.” —Getting Stitched on the Farm “Fassett is a kind of Harrison Ford of the knitting world….” —The Washington Post “Kaffe Fassett is a luminary in the world of textiles and knitting, spreading the gospel of color in his books and travels.”—The Houston Chronicle “This book is a gorgeous coffee table treasure but it so much more than the vibrant photos, it is a moving and interesting autobiography and I am so glad it has been published. What a treat to read, hold, soak in and enjoy.” —Susan B. Anderson “Brimming over with beautiful eye-candy and intimate details, this colorful book is sure to charm and inspire.” —Love of Knitting magazine “One of the book’s many virtues is how effectively Fassett conveys his enthusiasm about his work to the reader. ‘I’m st
