Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Colvin, an artist who unites nature and fabric into breathtaking landscape-inspired quilts, invites the reader into her studio as she discusses her working process and demonstrates her techniques through an assortment of full-color photographs. Her purpose is to help aspiring art quilters find a personal style based on what they like to do with fabric. First she discusses how choices and techniques determine style. Then, using the concepts of a tree, a bird, and the human figure, she demonstrates how she moves from idea to finished design. Richly illustrated throughout, this volume is highly recommended for art textile collections and large public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
