After browsing through the images in this book, you will never view an urban scene in the same way. House has a brilliant eye for pulling basic patterns from everyday city sights, such as the sides of buildings, airport runways, tires, and even barcodes, and transforming them into fabric. She translates these sights into simple, geometric quilts whose patterns are achieved through the repetition of basic shapes and straightforward construction techniques, often sewn together in horizontal rows. While House’s easy-to-follow instructions make it possible for quilters to re-create her patterns exactly, she also encourages individuals to interpret the designs loosely and use them as jumping-off points for their own unique work. Whichever approach you take, House’s patterns will train your eye to discern the underlying quilt patterns in the most unexpected of places.
