This book covers three basic areas. Gwens area of expertise . . . design
Freddy's sense of color . . .
and . . . the combination of the two which make for a collaboration made in quiltmaking heaven.
They also show how to put together wonderful borders, shashings and other extra goodies they call "the Parts Department" ready to be used to make exciting creations at a whim.
This is by far my favorite book ever in my personal quilting library. So many pictures - some showing both Gwens and Freddys homes and studios as well as many pictures of them working together. AND . . . many many pictures of the quilts they have designed and made. Just a treasure for any quilter who loves these two artists.
I think they've got something here - I can't wait for their next book!
Since I'm an experienced quilter already, and very familiar with the Liberated Quilting methods, I haven't tried following any of the specific patterns they give, so I can't really address the how-to aspects.
This book is worth buying for the bright photographs alone, even if you never plan to sew a stitch. Rarely have I seen a quilting book so richly loaded with wild color and fun yet sound design. And their systems for collaboration offer useful and entertaining systems - artistic and practical collaboration can be difficult, but they bring such fun to the whole idea that you'll be looking for a collaborator before you've finished the first chapter. And if collaborative quilting isn't for you, you will still get many ideas to adapt as your own.
Keep it where you can flip through it any time of the day or night - it's an instant antidepressant!
I am very familiar with Gwen's wonderful style - she brings traditional folk quilt style to life. These quilts are an update of that style using today's glorious fabric for a look that's irresistable. Thanks to both Moran and Marston for this treasure.
