really inspiring and gets you to think outside the box. Gets my quilting juices going.
I was anxiously awaiting the release of Rayna¿s new book and wasn¿t disappointed. Like her previous book, Create Your Own Hand-Printed Cloth, this is a process book. It doesn¿t contain patterns, template or ¿projects¿. What it does contain is inspiration and permission to play and create without fear of the quilt police ¿ no ¼¿ seam allowances required, no matching of seams. The book contains clear, detailed photographs and Rayna¿s writing style is easy to read and understand. Her emphasis is on working intuitively, trusting our instincts and erasing the word ¿mistake¿ from our vocabulary. I love Rayna¿s disregard for color wheel terms like analogous, complementary and split complementary; instead she suggests going with what looks and feels right. Throughout the book, Rayna¿s emphasis is on helping us create ¿original¿ quilts. The icing on the cake is that this book is a great scrap/stash buster with lots of ways to use up all those odds and ends we have been collecting for years.
