Painting with Fabric

It's not a typo...it is not painting on fabric, though Jeanine does utilize paints minimally for shading or highlighting; rather, this is creating a "painting" with the medium of fabric instead of paint!

Painting With Fabric is Jeanine Malaney's technique of creating artworks with fabric utilizing fabric collage, raw edge appliqué and free-motion quilting. This is a How-To book using this technique which will allow you to paint a picture with fabric! It's not a typo...it is not painting on fabric, though Jeanine does utilize paints minimally for shading or highlighting; rather, this is creating a "painting" with the medium of fabric instead of paint! Soooooo fun and less threatening than using paints. Jeanine's technique is basically fabric collage, enhanced with sewing techniques (raw-edge appliqué and free-motion quilting). She cuts fabric pieces and compose a collage by gluing and rearranging pieces on a background fabric she call my "canvas”. After college, Jeanine may add shading and detail features with fabric paint. She then secures the image with clear or smoke monofilament thread. After squaring up she may add fabric borders, then she layers with backing and batting. With a quilting process you can then increase texture and highlight features creating a three-dimensional effect. You can then produce your own continuous binding to match or compliment borders. Each unique piece should be titled, signed, and framed. Fundamental to this technique is a process of finding an inspiration, establishing a design based on the elements of artistic composition, selecting appropriate fabrics, collage layering, free-motion quilting, use of paint for detail and shading, and finishing touches for a professional look (borders, squaring, binding, labeling). All steps are explained and illustrated in detail in the book. Also included are design tips for skies and water, for mountains, rocks and cliffs, for foliage and trees, figures and buildings. Many examples from photo inspiration to a finished fabric collage “painting” are provided in this book. This technique is for the artist who wants to create original and unique fabric collages, one-of-a-kind watercolor or landscape quilts, and without the purchase of any kind of kit. You can even use the fabric that already exists in your stash and your existing sewing setup.

Benny Andrews loved to draw. He drew his nine brothers and sisters, and his parents. He drew the red earth of the fields where they all worked, the hot sun that beat down, and the rows and rows of crops. As Benny hauled buckets of water, he made pictures in his head. And he dreamed of a better life—something beyond the segregation, the backbreaking labor, and the limited opportunities of his world. Benny’s dreams took him far from the rural Georgia of his childhood. He became one of the most important African American painters of the twentieth century, and he opened doors for other artists of color. His story will inspire budding young artists to work hard and follow their dreams.

Rich colours and arresting designs capture the mood of celebration and joy that characterizes this photographic record of contemporary religious works of art. Chosen for their excellence in design and stitchery, these works represent the achievements of artists who have created art, in fabric, for places of worship. This book celebrates this important artistic expression, a significant part of our heritage. Pieces are selected from communities across Canada: from a small parish on a Micmac reserve in Nova Scotia to a large urban synagogue in Vancouver; from the igloo-shaped cathedral in Iqaluit to a suburban church nestled beside a wildlife march in southwestern Ontario.
