Product Description

Review

Confession: We adore art quilts! And if you favor modern quilts, know that it's a small hop from modern to art, especially because many techniques and design approaches are shared by both q-camps. (Improv piecing, white space and applied color theory, to name a few.) In fact, we've been patiently waiting for some of the better-known mod quilters to dip their stitches into fiber art. (It'll happen. Give it time.) In the interim, we enjoy the work of phenomenal established fiber artists, such as Valerie. A successful architect, Valerie has made a second career out of her award-winning art quilts that are mostly inspired by her love of structures, cities and maps. In this, her first book, she draws heavily on design principles honed from her life spent creatively exploring architecture. She passes this on through exercises, art quilt techniques and excellent photography. Her style here is collage - a blend of texture, material and manipulation - and her theme is the map. Each quilt in her collection reflects a broad range of approaches to the maps she was inspired by. (Bonus: Her students' gallery is total eye candy!) Delightful! --Generation Q Magazine; November/December 2013

5.0 out of 5 stars eye opener 25 Aug. 2013
By Annie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew nothing about this book or its writer, but chose it on a whim!
My intuition was SPOT-ON! What an inspiring read. The lessons/ demos well paced with lots of examples, and, unlike many writers of craft books who miss out stages of their thinking process, Valerie has every stage, and even examples of front and back examples so the reader knows where they are.
And a delightful discovery was the use of Haikus to develop a mental mood/ inner creative environment/focus. Words attached to the pictures are a magic use of symbolism for me to plough my sensing feeling of the semi-real/semi-surreal into my project. Well done, Valerie S Goodwin, and thank you.
