Notă biografică

Judith Baker Montano is an award-winning fibre artist, a bestselling author, and a world-renowned teacher whose career has taken her from painting, to crazy quilting, to embroidery art and beyond.


Judith Baker Montano is the queen of hand embroidery to many quilters. Her numerous books have taught a generation about crazy quilting and embellishment, silk ribbon embroidery, and more. Her latest book merges traditional stitch techniques with a modern approach to including embroidery with contemporary quilt making. The gorgeous hand-drawn and watercolor illustrations are totally captivating in their beauty and clarity. I was surprised and impressed to discover they were created by Judith herself, who has a background in fine art and is clearly an accomplished watercolorist. This comprehensive book includes all a reader needs to know - a glossary outlining styles, supplies, and tools; a stitch guide of 60 beautifully illustrated stitches; informative chapters on utilizing stitch in projects; and more. Two notable chapters, Combining Stitches and Think Like a Painter, encourage readers to use embroidery in new and innovative ways. Judith ends with taking readers through the creation of a special project, from the first photograph to design decisions to the final product. --Quilting Arts Magazine; Dec/Jan 13 Issue
