    Wonderful Inspiration

    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!
