Instant Fabric: Quilted Projects From Your Home Computer
By Livia McRee
That Patchwork Place

The following statement perfectly sums up the book "Instant Fabric" by Livia McRee: “Transferring your favorite images onto fabric has never been easier! Learn to copy any image directly onto fabric using the paper backed printer fabric now available. Then feature your creations in 15 stylish, step-by-step home décor projects.”

Ms McRee describes how you prepare your artwork with a computer, scanner & printer, and also photocopies if you do not have a computer. There are even some images in the book that you may use.

In reading through the supplies and techniques used in this book, things are made very clear in what to use and how to use it. From scanner, printer, copyrighted & copyright-free artwork, printer fabric, to handling the fabric after printing, to using image editing software, and your quiltmaking tools, Livia has easy to read and easy to understand instructions. Her quilted projects give you some great ideas for putting images on to fabrics and how to use them in your quilt projects.

Have you wanted to try this method? I know I have been preparing myself by collecting supplies and learning a little about my image editing software. With this book in hand, I am now ready to try it! Don’t miss this book!?
