Quilted Architecture

Posted by Lynn Koolish on Aug 1st 2017

In her fourth book, Fabulous Facades, Gloria Loughman turns her attention to architecture. Recreate your own real or imagined buildings in fabric, starting with small sections that are easy to work with. Use raw-edge appliqué to attach the sections to a base, and voilà, you’ve created your own masterpiece. 

Learn the art of color and perspective while using one of the patterns from the book or creating your own design from a photo using Gloria’s step-by-step instructions.

No need to limit yourself to just buildings; you can use the technique for boats, cars, and more.
