At last

I've been waiting for this book to arrive! It is a workbook, with exercises and homework in each chapter, to help develop design skills and make art quilts. As the authors say:
Art quilting is both art and quilting - both aspects should be balanced, and yet the definitions of each should be stretched.

The book focuses more on the art in art quilts and assumes that the reader has certain basic quilt making skills. I've just had a quick browse through the book, so I'm not sure yet how much I will learn from it, but I'm going to work through the exercises in my own time. This could be quite an interesting learning experience.

been waiting to see that one ... or for someone who's judgement I trust to see it. Can you give us another review when you've had a proper dabble?
xxbtw sorry about the mammoth file I just emailed you @ work.
also btw have you seen the new issue of Quilting Arts yet? Someone had a copy at Maryborough today but I didn't get a chance to see more than one or two pages. Bummer.

Yes, I will post more about the book once I look at it properly. Can't wait to delve deeper. Latest QA magazine has some fantastic photography in it (I've just had a flip through - haven't read it properly yet either). Two excellent reads for the long weekend....
