Art Quilts: What are they and How do you make them? Tutorials/tips Part 3

Tonight's post has information which are not necessarily just for art quilts...but any quilt!

(Della) Alice Cruz has posted two tutorials on her blog, one of which is that illusive creature I had heard of, but never figured out…the machine applied BINDING…no hand sewing. J

And…another fun one:  A way to use those scraps that are
Too Small To Keep, Too Big To Throw Away:

Helen Anne Lemke offers two tutorials on her blog which are useful to art quilters as well as traditional quilters… on color and value and another, how to baste a quilt on a WALL!  Wow…my knees thank her already.

Look here for her “how to” sections.

Brenda Gael Smith is just chock full of information.  Here’s what she has in her words:

I have numerous tutorials for quilt finishing techniques of my blog
and link to others that I have found useful.  You can view a complete
listing at:

Also I am the 3 Creative Studios guest artist for March and have
prepared a series of mini-tutorials on shibori for their "Technique of
the Month" program.  The first tutorial is on Karamatsu (Japanese
larch) which is a radiating stitch resist design. See:

The other introductory tutorials cover folding resists; pole wrapping
and clamp resists.

Now, just to leave you on a dangling note…Lisa Walton has a tutorial on using dangling fringe or beads on her blog:

The tutorial is listed on the side, but you’ll be sidetracked in all the other fun and informative areas.  Have fun!
