Library Journal - Library Journal
Award-winning quilter McTavish has a passion for wholecloth quilts, which are traditionally made from a single piece of fabric usually white adorned with elaborate quilting patterns and sometimes combined with trapunto, a type of padding that adds dimension. She presents a gallery of 60 wholecloth quilts photographed so that readers can see the whole quilt and details of the quilting and trapunto work; commentaries by the artist and the author accompany each. Instructional chapters cover supplies, using architectural details as inspiration for wholecloth quilting designs, adding trapunto to wholecloth quilts, working with pieced or appliqu d quilts, and adding shadow and color trapunto to wholecloth quilts. This beautiful coffee-table book is highly recommended for large public libraries. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
