  1. Quiltmaker's Favorites

    “There is so much to say about this new release by Mary Ellen Kranz… but the introduction sums it up nicely: “…this is a book about how to make your quilting say something that reflects what you love. It is about image inspired quilts.” The “Photo to Fabric” section discusses completely the process of getting images onto fabric. The rest of the book presents projects–use the instructions or take from them inspiration for your own creations. A must-have handbook!”
    - Quiltmaker’s Favorites, Spring 2009

    “Kranz has taken a revolutionary but relatively simple idea, incorporating scanned photos into quilts, and moved it up to the next artistic level. Her use of photography in quilts is limited only by her imagination. Instead of merely embedding snapshots in her quilt designs, she bends and twists and rings changes on her images that add remarkable new dimensions to her work.”
