This is a beautifully produced book, which really does give you theinformation you need to make wonderful, personal and contemporary quilts. If you need the basics this is not the book to buy - as the summarydescribes this is for people who know the basics about quilting but wantup-to-date advice and inspiration and valuable design ideas. I metSandra Meech at the NEC and found her very friendly and inspiring and socouldn't wait for the book to appear. I promise I was not disappointedand keep it close by to refer to often.
A lovely book, with excellent details of how to design your own quilt. The finished project will be a work of art as well as a quilt. The book takes you through every step of the design process, from finding the initial inspiration, colour, proportions and how to finish and embellish the quilt. It is not about traditional patchwork, but is more about taking the technique to the next level. A very good book for those interested in design and use of colour.
Fabulous book - informative & easy to follow with many, many images to make the journey even easier. Also valuable for those who need to provide a visual instruction for students following any kind of creative textiles course. The photocopy friendly Design Class instructions are a real boon to lesson planning, the creative ideas will have you rummaging in your fabrics and reaching for your sewing machine at the weekend.
