Book Review: Stacked & Stitched

Stacked & Stitched
Christine Morgan
AQS Publishing; $21.95

Using a layered and slashed technique similar to faux chenille, Christine Morgan creates “pelts,” five to seven layered fabrics stacked, sewn and cut on the bias in parallel rows and then slashed and washed. The pelts can now be cut into shapes using templates or rulers and reconstructed into pillows, decorative items, or art pieces. The book includes complete instructions for making the “pelts” and four projects. You really have endless possibilities to create with this technique.

Look for the book at your favorite book retailer. Here’s a link to if you would like to learn more about the book.
