Drawn to Stitch
line, drawing and mark-making in textile art by Gwen Hedley
I pulled this book off the shelf for some summer reading and was once again inspired by the excellent format of lessons, images, drawings and personal experiences that the author shares with her readers.
"line is an essential component of all textile and surface art. When used effectively, line and mark making convey texture, tone form movement and mood"
As quilters and artists, we use line in piecing, applique, quilting and more. It's important to know and understand how we can interpret different line qualities. this book will certainly help any of us with our creative work. I keep this book nearby when I want to consider and mull over my design ideas.
