Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
More and more quilters are exercising their design skills and are in need of sources of inspiration for their own quilted creations. This and the following work will appeal to quilters who want to move beyond project books. McDowell is a multifaceted quilt artist whose work is noted for its diversity of style, sureness of design, and dramatic use of color. Paging through this personal memoir of her career is like visiting a gallery. Traditional patchwork, appliqu, strip piecing, symmetrical patchwork, tessellations, penrose tiles, fractals-she has left her unique mark on virtually every form of quilting. This first book in C&T's "Art & Inspirations" series is a personal retrospective of the career of a woman who knows what she means when she writes, "It's a lot easier to buy nice fabrics than it is to make good quilts." Highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.
