In ‘Creative Quilts’, she shows you how to take inspiration from a wealth of sources, including art, textiles and architecture, and gives special emphasis to journals and sketchbooks. The book contains full instructions for a range of exciting techniques, including surface embellishment, mixed-media techniques, and taking quilt work into three dimensions, plus practical advice on exhibiting work. Special ‘Creativity Plus’ and ‘Design Workshop’ exercises help you to develop confidence in your own creativity.
