The photography in this quilt book is visually stunning and many of the quilt designs are gorgeous. The emphasis is on color, hue, and scale. The authors' design principles are fully explained in detail. It is quite evident that the authors are quilting and color theory teachers by the way they explain each step so thoroughly from beginning to end in the quilt-making process. An excellent book for a beginner who is not particularly interested in quilts that look like their granny made them, although as an intermediate-level traditional quilter, I appreciated some of the hints and refreshers in techniques and color theory. Many of the quilt designs intrigue me and some may become my projects at some point.
The Design Notes after each quilt pattern and the three additional color variations per quilt further caught my attention. This book is a classic modern jewel. I was so impressed with it that I bought their Transperancy Quilts book afterwards and was not disappointed. Donna Keating, July 13, 2012
