Deviant Modern Machine Quilting, Linzi Upton’s ebook with video
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. Linzi believes:
There are no hard and fast rules in quilting. Any ‘rules’ can be bent or broken.
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 for machine quilting – alongside her video demonstrations – will inspire you to try out a fusion of skills and ideas, and then create more original quilts. She leads the beginner to machine quilting gently through tips and techniques, then shows how to apply those new skills on fabulous projects.
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.
International acclaim for Deviant Modern Machine Quilting
‘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!’ – Natalia Turchaninova, Quilter (master patchwork) from Russia.
