From Collage to Quilt by Sarah Hibbert
Learn how to create stunning paper collages from on-hand materials and accurately transpose those designs into a fabulous quilt.
Quilter Sarah Hibbert finds inspiration in the everyday objects around her. Her unique approach includes using readily available, recyclable materials for paper collage, then she takes this design as the springboard for her quilts. Quilt Paper Scissors! is the first craft book of its kind, combining the disciplines of paper collage and quilting. Rather than using a collage of fabric pieces, Hibbert incorporates found objects, such as card stock, pages from magazines, and even canned food labels, into her quilts. The result is stunning, and in the book, she teaches you how to do this at home. Inside, you’ll find 18 projects for both collage and quilting; the book even includes the paper materials needed to complete one of the projects. Hibbert’s work is incredibly artistic, and soon, you’ll be able to execute one-of-a-kind designs at home.
About the author:
Sarah Hibbert is a modern quilter influenced as much by art and architecture as quilting heritage. Often starting with traditional quilt blocks and giving them an improvisational twist – Sarah’s use of textural fabric, hand stitching, natural, rich tones and clever, but limited use of prints has seen her work show internationally as well as being acquired for both public and private collections. Recently, Sarah has challenged herself to create small paper collages within a limited time-frame. Selecting from these simple pieces, Sarah scales the design to construct quilts that retain the spontaneity of the originals and while showcasing her characteristic quilting style. She lives in London.
