Editorial Reviews

Review

"Although the book itself is inspirational, their provision of eighty patterns extends it into the how-to realm. Every page in this book is a visual treat, but when I happened upon Lori Holt's section, I about fainted from all the cuteness...I could go on indefinitely about the contents of this book. If left on a coffee table, it will wow your non quilting friends. But it deserves a spot in your own creative space." - Scarlett Burroughs Craft Gossip Quilting Editor

Another reviewer called this a coffee table book, and I think that's a good description. It is spectacularly colorful, which quilters love, with lots of pictures of tchotchkes from studios, and details of studios, but very few actual full view shots of studios and almost no information about their studios. The artists are well-known names to quilters, and include a few men as well. A number of them are primarily fabric designers. The stories about how each artist became a part of the quilting world are interesting and sometimes inspiring. The authors over promise and under deliver on the claim of over 80 online patterns. (The URL for the patterns is at the bottom of the copyright page.) There are 18 PDF patterns of single blocks. In the book, each artist has provided 3 or 4 pictures of ways to use their blocks in quilts. However, there are no instructions for making a full quilt, so these pictures are for experienced quilters who can look at an illustration and figure out how to make the quilt pictured using the block pattern and other blocks or pieces not included in the downloads. The pictures are really more for inspiration than instruction.

Any new publication by Jo Packham is cause for immediate checking out. So when I first learned she was turning her focus to quilters and quilting with her new book Where Women Create - Quilters, it went on my Amazon Wish List months before publication.

This time, all the photos have a satiny sheen, and are clear and bright. It's organized by designer; there are 20 of them, and you can see their names by using Amazon's Look Inside! feature. There's a "mostly mod" vibe going on throughout, with Kari Meng being one notable exception. Her exquisite rouge and stone colors feature prominently in her quintessentially Euro-vintage-style chapter. Most noteworthy for me is the photo of the BACKS of some of her blocks; my very best piecing never looked that tidy.

Also featured is a guy who busts through the WWC hormone ceiling: David Butler ("the" Amy's husband). His flag-styled quilts and starry projects are divine. I've loved his Parson Gray fabric lines for their simple good looks and strong unusual colors. But his chapter is a bit disappointing because there are no sneak-peeks at his studio space.

My favorite montage is for designer Janet Bolton. Her small-scale textile picture pieces are spare, charmingly quirky, and I could look at them for hours. (But I secretly lust for her buttons.) I like that her space looks just a little messy, but very clean. You can tell that no scrap is exempt in her space.

Now, what about these "more than 80 online quilt patterns" referred to on the front cover? Here's how it works - I think; this was not so easy to figure out and the instructions are somewhat hidden. Each designer has a 12-inch square quilt block design.

I LOVE the book, however,I am finding it IMPOSSIBLE to find the download for the patterns. It is NOT "easy" as promised in the front (page 4) of the book. I have tried repeatedly to find a download site and have been unable to locate it. HELP!!!
I even followed the directions in another review and cannot access the download capability.

UGHHHHHH!!

I was disappointed with the content of the book for 2 reasons. The title Where Women Create led me to believe the book was more about the design of quilting studios; and the quilts were limited to modern design which is not my cup of tea. On the other hand, the layout was well done, the pictures colorful and the stories were really interesting.

Visual eye candy! Wouldn't expect anything less from Jo Packham! Just like her Where Women Create books, this Quilting book is a feast for the eyes!

If you love to create and are interested in woman that do then this is a really inspirational book. The layout is well done with great photos of their work and studios. The stories are all about how they got to do what they do which is fascinating. This book looks great sitting on my coffee table as it has a well designed cover.
