Quilter's Home
You'd think after 27 books, Jean would run out of ideas. But for some reason, we think she's just getting' started! In Intuitive, Jean explores line and color 'a la art quilt style, and she seduces us into carrying our cameras everywhere. We've seen this before: the transition from strongly traditional quilting pioneer to raging freewheeling artiste (Gwen Marston and Joen Wolfrom come to mind). It's an absolute joy to see someone whom we think has set quilting down in narrow parameters break out and do so much more. And she cops to it! Intuitive isn't about breaking rules so much as bending them. We've always thought the testament of a real master is the ability to learn the rules and then manipulate them as his or her needs. Jean, we're on our knees, sister. Should you buy this book? When you're ready to break out of your Sawtooth Star rut, turn to Jean. She'll move you to quilt horizons you didn't now existed.

I received a digital copy of this book to review, but as soon as I opened the file I knew I had to have my own "real" book to study. And I wanted to drop everything else and just play with Jean Wells' techniques. The photos and design illustrations are wonderful -- you can really get a sense of her process of transforming natural inspirations into quilts. The book includes a lot of information about different aspects of color theory, and some innovative construction and finishing methods. Best of all, the writing style is friendly and helpful, without the tone of superiority that's sometimes found in art & design books. I highly recommend this book for your shelf or nightstand!
