"Ultimate Guide to Art Quilting" review

I was the lucky winner of this new book that was given away recently by Kathy Loomis at
"The Ultimate Guide to Art Quilting"
by Linda Seward

... covers just about every art quilt/surface design technique I can think of, and I've been making art quilts for decades. Click on the photo below of part of the table of contents and you'll see what I mean.

Linda, who lives in London and Oxfordshire, even covers physical exercises to prevent repetitive motion injuries and has a chapter on organizing school and community quilt projects, going way beyond writing just a technique book.

The photos sprinkled throughout are from more than 140 quilt artists from around the world, making the book well worth reading even if you already know all of the techniques.

It's been my bedtime reading ever since it came in the mail, sending me off to dreamland with images of gorgeous art quilts.

Have a colorful day
