Product Description

Review

Elizabeth Barton takes you through the steps of designing with fabric from finding your inspiration to color, value, and omission. If you are looking to step into Art Quilting, this is a great overview of how-tos and what-not-tos, including suggestions on how to critique a quilt or work you find isn't quite right. Most of Elizabeth's work is quite colorful, but she walks you through values and color charts to show how you could change the mood or feel of a project with a few color changes. The elimination of some objects from a photo inspiration doesn't seem to really change the overall impact of the design in many cases - a valuable lesson to this reviewer. The author makes quilting suggestions to continue the intention of your original design, including why and when to use metallic threads and/or the style of fill to use. --IMQA's On Track! Magazine; Fall 2013

I had previously done an online course with Elizabeth Barton so knew a little what to expect and I wasn't disappointed. A book to be read and re-read with lots of really usable information about design and colour choices. The exercises are worth doing, too, not just gimmicks. In short, a book packed with essentials for anyone serious about designing their own art quilts.

I bought the kindle edition and am so very pleased I did. Throughout the book Elizabeth Barton makes reference to paintings, poetry and other quilter's work.and by tapping on the reference you can go directly to a site to see or read exactly what she is suggesting you refer or compare to. She frequently refers to illustrations within the book and, again, the kindle edition means you can immediately jump back or forward to those illustrations. I would say this is not so much a 'how to book' but a 'thinking and understanding book'. I have enjoyed reading it. In fact, unlike some books where I am anxious to rush through the book, I have found myself savouring this book. What she tells you is quite probably already known to you but they way she tells you makes you think. I have already reread many parts and I think I will be enjoying it over and over again. I am pleased I bought it.

This book is not a "how to make a quilt" book. It is a book about design, and how to make informed fabric choices. I don't think it is a beginners book, but if you have experience and would like to move onto other areas, this book is very good, clear explanations and plenty of photographs.

The seven steps are clearly explained and beautifully illustrated with the author's work. She even makes the effort to demonstrate what doesn't work so we can really see and understand the lesson point. It would have been nice maybe to show some other artists' work alongside Elizabeth's as her interest appears to be focussed on the built environment and for variety. However, the book really delivers and I would recommend it.
