The mandala, an ancient symbol meaning "universe" or "wholeness, " is a circular design comprised of equal sections that rotate around a common center. Quilter, teacher and lecturer Katie Pasquini has developed a unique method for adapting this intriguing motif for use in a variety of quilting projects. Rather than using square blocks as basic units, she arranges triangles, interlocking circles and squares and other geometric figures around a central point.

With this simply worded guide, you can use this technique to create beautiful whole-cloth or pieced mandala quilts using geometric motifs as well as filler patterns and fill-in designs. Step-by-step instructions, enhanced with helpful diagrams and illustrations, show you exactly how to proceed. You'll also find a wealth of useful suggestions for enlarging, marking, "painting" with cloth, basting, stretching and binding the quilt and other helpful hints.
