Batsford, 2003 - Crafts & Hobbies - 128 pages
Quilters yearning to extend their creativity and take their work to a higher level will find exactly what they're looking for in this unique guide. With more than 200 illustrations, plus the author's unique "Design Classes" and "Artist's Hints" in every chapter, it offers a fresh approach to the craft. The aim is to help those who know the basics to break away from the traditional block or prescribed pattern and build something original. A review of design and color principles shows how to find sources of inspiration and develop a theme, and quilters will also learn how to experiment on paper and cloth, use new stitching, and add embellishments. The templates and creative exercises will prove valuable again and again.
