Celebrated quilt artist Sandra Meech’s last book, Connecting Art to Stitch, explored the ways in which fine-art concepts can be taken into stitch to make outstanding pieces of quilt art. In this exciting new title, the author turns her attention to the rules of design, and how they can be harnessed – and broken – to inform your quilt-art work. You will learn how to recognise good design, and the immutable rules all designers need to know. The author’s signature practical workshops and exercises help you translate these rules into your own textile work, stimulating your creativity and encouraging you to explore new textures, materials, techniques and compositions. Detailed analyses of textile artists’ work provide a breakdown of how design rules can be applied.

Illustrated with a wealth of inspirational images from the world’s best quilt and textile artists, this beautiful book is a must-buy for everyone who wants to create better textile art.
