Review quote

Inspired by the Impressionist Masters it is not a wonder that the quilts in Gloria's book are breathtaking. Gloria covers design elements, colour, and inspiration. She takes the reader through her process from fabric dying to her mosaic tile process. She rounds out the book with four projects you can make using her techniques; although, with her book as a guide, you may be so motivated you might want to try your own design. Gloria's book is filled with tons of photographs, some that are very inspiring as well as those that demonstrate her techniques and inspirations. This book is bound (no pun intended) to appeal to the fibre artist who wants to create a masterpiece of their own. --The Canadian Quilter; Summer 2013show more

About Gloria Loughman

Gloria Loughman lives in Kerang, a small Australian town famous for its duck shooting and ibis rookery. She is married and has three daughters. Gloria trained as a secondary school teacher and worked mainly in literacy and special education faculties. Her initiation into the world of patchwork occurred approximately sixteen years ago, when she was recovering from a rugged course of chemotherapy. Over the years she has dabbled in many areas including strip piecing, bargello, colorwash, fabric dyeing and painting, and machine embroidery. After completing studies in design and color as part of a Diploma of Art in 1996, she began to make her large vivid landscape quilts depicting the Australian bush. These quilts have won many major awards in Australia, Europe, Japan, and the United States. Her quilt Kimberley Mystique was the winner of Australia's most prestigious national quilting award in 2003. Gloria loves sharing her knowledge and skills with others. She likes to challenge her students to design their own landscape quilts but is also happy to provide patterns. Many students come back for a second or third class. As well as being in demand as a teacher, Gloria has curated six exhibitions of Australian quilts to the United States and has had the privilege of judging at many major shows. Her work has been featured in many books and magazines. What began as a therapy has developed into a passion and has given Gloria the opportunity to travel the world exhibiting her quilts, teaching classes, and meeting lots of wonderful people.show more
