Artist and quiltmaker Sara Larson Buscaglia invites readers to her Colorado farm to learn the secrets—and beauty—of making natural dyes from foraged plants and stitching natural-fiber quilts by hand. Her creative practice centers on simplicity, working with nature, and using naturally derived materials and processes—and she is sharing that practice for the first time in this book.
Farm & Folk Quilt Alchemy explores natural dyeing methods and details the process of creating a quilt from scratch. With an emphasis on the slow and intentional aspects of hand stitching, Sara’s quilts are artful and satisfying to create. By focusing on select dye plants and recipes, which are all ideal for cotton and linen specifically, Sara teaches the reader how to achieve consistent and beautiful results using traditional handwork techniques.
