There's 3 projects in the book, plus a gallery and his story. The book has several examples and fabric suggestions. The quilts are stunning. I found the fabric online and ordered it. I was surprised how it's a relatively simple concept but the quilts are beautiful.
I suggest keeping an eye out for fabrics for convergence quilts and getting the book and reading through it first. It's definitely my next project. I'm so pleased I bought the book.
Ricky Tims avoids these pitfalls, with a book that is *incredibly* well written -- and yields brilliant results.
Just how easy is this? I made my first convergence quilt top in two or three hours, while I was also watching a baseball game, using 4 fat quarters that I already had on hand. And I'm no quilting wiz.
Since then, I've made two additional convergence quilts, and I'm sure to make several more (the holidays are coming, after all). As a quilting instructor pointed out, these are like potato chips, in that you can't stop at one. I've loved every quilt I've made, and so has everyone who has seen these quilts.
Do note that the basic quilt is very small -- perfect for a wall quilt but not much more. I think you could create several of these as blocks to turn into a bed quilt, but you'd be on your own to do so. The quilt is so easy to make and I like the results so much that I am tempted to give it a try.
This would be a great book for someone who is fairly new to quilting. I wouldn't suggest it as your very first book (you should do at least a few small traditional projects first), but the forgiving nature of the techique is sure to give you a quilt to be proud of. It's all straight lines, and despite the appearance of the quilt it has no complex piecing. What fun! Highly recommended.
Also, he has several examples in the book done by others which gives a wider range of views on how the fabric choices affect the outcome.
That's useful in planning a users quilt project.
it did lead me to look on line for others who had successfully finished these patterns. lovely.
