Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Sassaman is an award-winning artist whose medium is fabric. Her quilt "Willow" was named one of the best 100 American Quilts of the Century, and the illustration of it on the back cover makes its unique quality evident. In this highly personal book, Sassaman writes about her art and what it means in her life, the influences that shaped her, and practical instructions for her readers on how to observe nature and apply designs inspired by nature in appliquéd quilts. The illustrations are brilliantly reproduced, with full-color photographs on every page. Most are of quilts or details of quilts, but others are of photographs of Sassaman's studio and home; of flowers and gardens; of other artists' work that have influenced her approach. Most quilt books feature traditional patterns; here is a work bursting with unique designs and love of creativity that should inspire anyone to find her own style, using fabric to express it. There are also detailed instructions on searching nature for design ideas, creating designs, and transferring the ideas from paper to fabric, using a sewing machine. Readers who love art and artistic expression, from junior high on up, will be inspired by Sassaman to design and create quilts that express individual creativity.
