It’s All About the Face – Quilted Fabric Portraits by Phyllis Cullen and Cindy Richard
How do you quilt a face or bring your favorite people to life with fabric?
Capturing the essence of a subject is the goal. Phyllis and Cindy have applied the rules of fine art to quilting faces. The book offers in-depth direction — even if you cannot draw, or have never taken an art class or even a sewing class.
Using large, full-color, detailed images as examples, the authors lead the reader step by step through the process of:
- Composing a portrait so it tells a story and WOWS the viewer
- Using digital technology to reveal the values in every face
- Selecting fabrics
- Creating totally recognizable quilted fabric portraits
- Quilting your masterpiece by following anatomical contours
About the Authors:
Fabric portrait artists and teachers, Phyllis Cullen and Cindy Richard, show you how to create amazing, true-to-life portraits! “It’s All About the Face” was born when the authors realized there was little available instruction about how to quilt faces. Having taught the subject for years, they decided to collaborate.
