Some of the text dwells a bit too much for me on the circumstances in the author's life that led to hermaking some of the quilts, but other readers might like this.
As the previous reviewer states, preparation for the author's method is quite lengthy and necessitates both freezer paper and foundation stabilizer, but once mastered, it allows the pieces to be sewn together quickly and precisely. The author explains her method in detail and then provides seven simple, but effective, projects to follow with full pattern templates.
There are then chapters on three-dimensional effects, borders and bindings, free-motion stitching all of which contain unusual effects to make your quilt really special.
The last chapter, Striking Out on Your Own, takes you through the steps of designing and sewing your own original quilt incorporating curved pieces, and introduces you to improvisational quilts, a sort of sew-as-you-go method (which the author expands on in her next book).
I have a lot of quilting books and am always looking for new ideas, which I was happy to find here, and I think that all quilters who want to go beyond geometrics will find something useful in this book.
