Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
McDowell (Art & Inspirations: Ruth B. McDowell), a quilt artist whose wall quilts have been exhibited both nationally and internationally, has completed more than 300 art quilts in the last 20 years. Here she gives the reader an inside tour of 18 of these works, which include such diverse creations as Four Companions, a quilt depicting the four hobbits in the Lord of the Rings, and Cod, an underwater panorama of North Atlantic cod. She also introduces the reader to her creative process-how she develops designs, how she chooses fabric, how her piecing methods influence the design, and how she uses free-motion quilting to enhance the visual impact of her quilts. An excellent introduction to McDowell's work for quilters at all levels, this is essential for serious quilting collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
