Reviews

Ann Loveless is an award-winning art quilter and was the maker of the first textile piece to win first place at ArtPrize in 2013, a US art competition with a prize of $200,000 so she is exceptionally well qualified to teach us a thing or two about textile landscapes. This is primarily a book about her work; it has a comprehensive gallery section, but it includes some insight into Ann's method of working and very good advice about planning and executing your own piece of landscape art in fabric. There is a great step by step guide to recreating one of Ann's pieces, she bonds freehand cut strips of patchwork fabric to fusible web to build backgrounds and then adds foreground detail with further textures and a form of confetti quilting. There's a lot of free motion embroidery involved in this technique, but it is fairly unstructured, so even if you're a little unconfident in that area, you're still likely to achieve a great result. -- Katy Purvis Popular Patchwork, December 2015

Landscape Art Quilts by Ann Loveless: After reading reviews prior to buying this book I expected it to be short on instruction, however, I found the instructions to be very clear and well illustrated. There are 30 or so fairly simple scenic quilts featured. As Ann says, she makes hundreds to sell every year so her technique has to be quick and easy. She also comments that she thinks framing her quilts helps sales. A total novice may find the techniques a bit difficult, but anyone who has used fusible web before shouldn't have any trouble. I think this book is good for beginner to intermediate quilters, while it is unlikely to offer any new insights to experienced art quilters. My rating is based on suitability to the beginner/intermediate group.
