Book Review # 3

Another excellent addition to my library is Exploring Dimensional Quilt Art by C. June Barnes (British Artist). I can't begin to describe the art she creates from quilted fabric so please check out these illustrations from her book. The 3-D art I have created over the years has been more on the functional side but June Barnes has definitely gone beyond this to design and create innovative surfaces to be transformed into 'elaborate twisted and embellished structures, vessels and hanging installations'.

The book is well presented with excellent colour photos, easy to follow line drawings and directions, on making 3-D art work. Definitely a book to explore!
