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.
