Making Romantic Fabric-Covered Boxes

By Hiney, Mary Jo; Hinery, Mary Jo

New York: Sterling Pub Co Inc, 1998-06-01. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear to boards and jacket; Simple. Elegant. Romantic. These fabric-covered boxes decorate a house wonderfully, make great gifts...and provide the perfect hiding place for precious love letters, trinkets, and keepsakes! They're simple to do, and oh-so- pretty. Create any of the nearly 20 splendid boxes and variations. A "flower fairy" shines with a thin layer of iridescent gold paint, and a square poppies-and-roses box looks beautifully romantic and traditional; wire-edged ribbon, velvet leaves, and beads top it off; and an inside tray can hold jewelry and other small items. Each of three cube boxes features a different picture, or try a pansy box, with white eyelet lace, sheer lavender ribbon, and brass hearts. Wear your heart on a box edged with textured ribbon and rosettes. Assemble a box "For the One I Love" -- it has ivory trim, antique gold metallic cord and braid, gold and rose silk floss, and mother-of-pearl buttons. You'll cherish every project, with its exquisite trimming and design.

By Crust, Melody; Tewell, Heather Waldron

New York: McGraw-Hill, 2001-10-16. Trade Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; This work includes techniques and inspirations for creating the quilting design. The hours of effort and creative energy you have devoted piecing a gorgeous quilt top have paid off and the quilt is almost finished. Yet instead of taking the last steps to completion, you hesitate. For you, like many quilters, the big question "What do I quilt where?" is a stumbling block - one that may relegate a potential heirloom to a dusty closet shelf with other unfinished projects. It needn't be so. With the expert guidance in "A Fine Line", you will discover that creating a quilting design and stitching the layers of the quilt together are every bit as rich and enjoyable a process as piecing the top.Whether you quilt by hand or by machine, in these pages you will learn how to choose a quilting design that is both achievable according to your skill level and appropriate in style to the quilt top you're making. Through clear text and dozens of examples, you will learn how to implement the principles of design - shape, line, color, and proportion - as they apply to the quilting stitch. Then, step-by-step instructions and illustrations explain how to execute the design. You will select and prepare batting, backing, and threads; mark and baste the top; and - whether you are working by hand or by machine - create fine lines of stitches that add beauty, dimension, and texture to your quilt. To help train your eye to find patterns in the world around you, "A Fine Line" includes sensational color photographs by noted nature photographer Charles Crust.By studying the lines in flowers, leaves, sand dunes, and landscapes, you will have endless inspiration for new quilting designs that will come to life on your quilt. "A Fine Line" also includes: "Let's Play Quilt" features that demonstrate multiple ways of quilting the same top to achieve different effects; hundreds of rich visual examples - quilts and stitched fabrics - all photographed in fine detail; and, complete chapter on finishing the quilt - adding bindings, labels, and sleeves. "A Fine Line" will help you quilt any design with confidence. With expert guidance on both hand- and machine-quilting techniques, you will soon stitch any design with ease, from a simple crosshatch to curves, intricate shapes, and elaborate feathers.
