Mickey Lawler has been quilting since 1968. Not only is she an award-winning quilter, she is also a sought-after speaker, popular teacher, and a best-selling author.
Mickey demonstrates 12 techniques that she employs to paint her remarkable sky dye fabrics, and shows how these pieces can be used to create wonderful, moody landscape art. She shares her secrets for mixing paints and metallic media and using brushes, brayers and more to achieve her special sky, water, nature and architectural effects. Three projects at increasing skill levels are given, and the galleries of landscape and patterned quilts made by Mickey and contributing artists show what can be accomplished using her techniques. --Machine Quilting Unlimited; Nov/Dec 2012
