Item description for The Art of Embroidered Flowers by Gilda Baron, Bill Slavin, Mark Brimhall-vargas, Paul Foster, J. Trebolle Barrera, David Northrup & Douglas Dunn...

Using painted and dyed backgrounds, and hand and machine embroidery, this guide presents a wonderful variety of 3-D landscape and flower embroideries. A number of techniques are employed when applying colour to the fabric including batik, salt discharge and brushing dye into a wet surface. Beautiful pictures are then stitched and built up over the background in easy stages. The feeling of perspective is enhanced by the clever use of scale and colour, and all the techniques are explained clearly and demonstrated in a series of stunning projects. This original book is packed with practical advice and information. Anyone interested in pattern, texture and colour will discover a wealth of inspiration when they work through the projects. Gilda's highly individual designs will encourage beginners and more experienced embroiderers to create their own embroidered flower designs.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Embroidered Flowers?

Use of images increases the educational value of book  Mar 19, 2008
The delicate beauty of the tiny flowers using handpainted fabric, dyed silk floss/thread, various threadwork and tiny cut-out fabric pieces are vividly brought to life through the quality images throughout the book. All procedures are discussed and supplemented by images to guide you to make flowers very similar to what is shown and thus providing the techniques necessary for each artist to vary the techniques in order to make your own variation of tiny embroidered flowers. The applications for this type of work is enormous and some ideas, such as handmade cards, are provided in this book. One cannot go wrong with having this book on your creative work space or reference library. I am very pleased with this book and hope to apply the ideas to my own work.
Wonderful inspiring miniature landscapes!!!  Mar 19, 2005
I love this book! It is so inspiring. Gilda uses supplies that most crafters/quilters have in their sewing rooms to make spectacular landscapes. Don't be afraid to try out her techniques. They are easy to follow and you'll be amazed at what you can create with some simple embroidery stitches.
