About the Author
Anna was born in Saint Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Russia. Anna found her talent at a very young age. When she was only eight years old, she started to paint watercolor copies of classic reproductions. Her paintings were naive, but colorful. She liked to paint swans in the lake and make furniture for her dolls from paper and scraps of fabric, gluing them together. After high school, she wanted to be either a teacher or a doctor, but the urge to create remained strong. Upon graduating from college, she worked for a couple of years as a stage and costumes decorator at the Kirov Theater of Opera and Ballet, and as a freelancer, knitting and designing sweaters. Anna loves to work with textiles, threads, and other fiber media. She has a passion for creating art quilts. In 1995, she traveled to the United States to visit her sister and was lucky enough to obtain a green card and the absolute freedom and and subsequent inspiration that come with it.

The pictures in the book are wonderful, stunning! I would like to make each one of the quilts.
Today I sat down to read the instructions. The first instructions are easy to understand and detailed.
Anna starts out with a simply project. As you go through the book, the projects become, in my opinion, more of a challenge. But the projects are wonderful and I certainly will give them a try. I'm not a novice quilter, but I'm not a master by any means.
There is semi-circle weaving, circle curvy weaving, fuzzy weaving, and partly curvy weaving. Great projects.
At the back of the book are more basic instructions and a pull out section of patterns. I have not taken the pattern section out so I'm not certain what it contains.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves beautiful quilts no matter if they are a novice or a person who wants a challenge. I can't see where they would be disappointed.
The process of weaving is fun and produces a really neat background. I'm so grateful that Anna was willing to share her talents with others. Very well written and easy to follow.
