Book review: Altered Photo Artistry

 Altered Photo Artistry
by Beth Wheeler
Beth’s work is glorious! Using mostly floral imagery, she has created captivating quilted artworks. The subtitle of the book is “Turn everyday images into works of art on fabric.” That’s just the information that this book delivers: it covers the special materials that you’ll need, shows you how to prepare and alter the images you wish to use, and tutors you on printing out on fabric.

And then begins the stitching! Beth also covers how to add outlining and thread details to really make your images sing. There are a handful of projects to round out the book, but for me, the most instructive part centered on choosing and altering those images.
