This intriguing book of fabrics and quilts will inspire quiltmakers of any skill level. Here she describes how she lets fabrics speak to her, inspiring quilts filled with color, texture, and pattern. The book is divided into five sections. In the first, she discusses creativity and how we can become more creative. Then, in "Basics," Roberta discusses color, value, fabric pattern, design principles, and tools. "Process" deals with all the ways we can use our fabric creatively to build our quilts. The "Gallery" section is a feast for the eyes with quilts from Roberta and her students. Finally, "Techniques" includes more creative ways to approach sewing.
