There are no hard and fast rules in quilting. Any ‘rules’ can be bent or broken.

Linzi Upton‘s new ebook with video, Deviant Modern Machine Quilting is available as a download or on DVDROM. 

Quilting is the freedom to express your creativity using whatever ideas or materials take your fancy. This is the ethos of Linzi Upton’s Deviant Modern Machine Quilting.

Quilting projects might be useful, practical or for exhibitions, but they should always be enjoyable or fun, and interesting to work on. Deviant Modern Machine Quilting gives you the confidence to develop your own inspiration, such as the colours and texture of your local landscape, rather than following another person’s pattern. You can make something completely ‘off the wall’ or just a small book cover, using modern patchwork and quilting, on a domestic or long-arm machine.

Linzi’s idiosyncratic mix of techniques and practical projects – alongside her video demonstrations – will inspire you to try out a fusion of skills and ideas, and then create more original quilts.

As Linzi says: ‘I used to aspire to traditional quilt designs which I found difficult to replicate, but now I enjoy working on my unique style which is as individual as my handwriting. Crucially, I am always prepared to DEVIATE from whatever the original plan might have been – if there even was a plan in the first place’.

See Linzi’s video introduction to Deviant Modern Machine Quilting on Vivebooks’ YouTube channel, along with other videos linked to this ebook showing techniques such as drawing circles on the domestic sewing machine, and how to bind a quilt.

    Линзи Аптон написала увлекательную книгу под названием “Deviant Quilting”, опубликованную в Vivebooks.
    Мне всегда нравились нетрадиционные подходы в пэчворке и Линзи прекрасно их демонстрирует. Искать что-то свое , пробы и ошибки – это прекрасный путь в пэчворке, но дело в том, что ошибка – это не есть ошибка, это интересно, как что-то новое.
    Фантазия Линзи изумительна: она находит необычные объекты и материалы для их создания, что может восхитить любое воображение. Отличные фотографии позволяют увидеть сказочный процесс и неподражаемый результат.
    Спасибо, Линзи!

    Linzi Upton wrote a fascinating book called “Deviant Quilting”, published by Vivebooks.
    I always liked unconventional approaches to patchwork and Linzi perfectly demonstrates them. Search for something different, trial and error – a great way to patchwork, but the fact that a mistake – this is not a bug, it’s interesting, something new.
    Fantasy Linzi is amazing: she finds unusual objects and materials to create them, which can amaze any imagination. Excellent photos allow you to see fabulous process and inimitable result.
    Thank you, Linzi!

    What a brilliant ebook! LInzi is so talented and that patchwork car just makes you want to meet her – and you can in her new ebook, ‘Deviant modern machine Quilting’. It is packed full of really inspirational ideas which are just crying out to be tried. With Linzi’s fun approach, you’ll find yourself experimenting with all sorts of new techniques and quilting up a storm! There are no Quilt Police here, so just go for it! – Chris Porter
