These two ladies, Linda and Jane, have created some of the most vibrant, artistic quilts that just pop! I love them all and I have been collecting fabrics to make several quilts that are in this wonderful book. Not only is this book instructional, but it is also awesome in planning new quilts that are not the norm. I have spent hours just looking at it deciding what to make first. You won't be disappointed, especially, if you are looking to make a statement with your quiltmaking in creating a true piece of art.
