This review is from: Clever Quilts: Making the Most of Panels, Borders, and Theme Prints (Paperback)
Have you ever been to a fabric store, spotted a panel print of a favorite subject, brought it home, then wondered what on earth to do with it? This book helps the quilter who wants to explore quilting using fabrics with, for example, panel pictures, large-scale prints, or border prints. The author goes way beyond simply quilting up the panel as it was cut from the bolt. She shows you ways to explore cutting, setting, and quilting your panel fabrics in ways that enhance and preserve the original artwork of the fabric. I especially enjoyed seeing one quilting pattern completed with two different fabrics. Her instructions are clear, concise, and utilize color so that even the beginner quilter can successfully complete a quilt using those great panel fabrics. You'll never shop for fabric the same way again!
