This book is genuinely liberating; I did not realize how beautifully your work can turn out when you're not trying so hard to do everything with strict, straight lines and angles. I love that these show so much character and soul of the people who create them - I don't feel like traditional quilting really allows that as much. I am also shocked that you don't have to use a ruler at all and that you get breathtaking results nonetheless. This never occurred to me, but I love it and cannot wait to use this technique.
The pictures are incredibly bright and lovely. The projects are quite open to interpretation and offer a lot of room to put your own spin on them. The methods are easy enough that even I can understand and see myself putting this into practice without hesitation. I generally don't feel that after trying to learn something entirely new from a book (rather than video, etc.), but this is so clear and simple to read and understand that I was amazed. The results she shows, and how other people came up with such different takes on the same project guidelines she gives, are interesting and beautiful as well.
I highly recommend this book; it has already changed my view on quilting drastically and for the better. I feel fortunate to have found such a great resource that opens my eyes to the fun I can have without the strict parameters I thought had to be there!
The lessons in this book give you the freedom (and courage) to break away from perfection in piecing, color selection and pattern; enjoying the process of improvisational cutting, stitching and color selection.
I think this is the BEST instructional and design quilting book and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new direction in quilt making.
