Inspired by her love of decorating for the seasons, Pat Sloan has created a stunning block-of-the-month applique quilt and an assortment of fun projects showcasing some of the block designs. Version I of the 85 x 85 quilt is made from vibrant batik fabrics for a bright and bold look. Version II uses more traditional colors and prints for a warm and toasty feel. To make either version of this quilt, you might want to organize or participate in a block of the month group through your local quilt shop or guild, or you can opt to make it on your own from start to finish. But don’t stop with the quilt! Other seasonal projects include a tabletop set, a project bag, a pillow, and a throw. Some of the blocks can even be finished as mini quilts.

Strange Material explores the relationship between handmade textiles and storytelling. Through text, the act of weaving a tale or dropping a thread takes on new meaning for those who previously have seen textiles?quilts, blankets, articles of clothing, and more?only as functional objects. This book showcases crafters who take storytelling off the page and into the mediums of batik, stitching, dyeing, fabric painting, knitting, crochet, and weaving, creating objects that bear their messages proudly, from personal memoir and cultural fables to pictorial histories and wearable fictions. Full-color throughout, the book includes chapters on various aspects of textile storytelling, from Textiles of Protest, Politics, and Power to The Fabric of Remembrance; it also includes specific projects, such as the well-known and profoundly moving Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, as well as poetry mittens, button blankets, and stitched travel diaries. Offbeat, poetic, and subversive, Strange Material will inspire readers to re-imagine the possibilities of creating through needle and fabric. Leanne Prain is the co-author (with Mandy Moore) of Yarn Bombing, now in its third printing, and the author of Hoopla: The Art of Unexpected Embroidery. A professional graphic designer, Leanne holds degrees in creative writing, art history, and publishing.
