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.
Learn to make naturally dyed quilts by hand with Farm & Folk founder Sara Larson Buscaglia’s beautiful aesthetic, informed by the extraordinary landscape surrounding her farm. 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, Buscaglia’s quilts are artful and satisfying to create.
