Details
“I’ve been reading Malka’s blog, A stitch in dye, for a very long time now, and I always enjoy all the beautiful eye candy over there.  Malka has a way of combining fabrics, both commercially printed as well as her signature hand-dyed fabrics, to create gorgeous works of art.” - Filminthefridge.com

“Dubrawsky’s aesthetic is colorful and vintage-inspired, with fun and functional designs.  The wide variety of small projects and accessories makes this a good choice for beginning quilters who may not feel ready to take on a full-size quilt and they’re excellent scrap-bag busters for quilters with a serious stash.” - Library Journal
Fresh Quilting: Fearless Color, Design & Inspiration is an amazingly beautiful and content rich new book by Malka Dubrawsky.  It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Malka’s work.  The first time I saw one of her quilts I totally flipped out.  Unique, colorful, and yes, Fresh!” - Kathy, Pinkchalkstudio.com

“Her work challenges me to embrace color more passionately, to get more gutsy with free motion quilting and to allow myself to work with more freedom at times.  I simply can't put down thisbook.” – Rachel Hauser, Stitched in Color

“This book proves there’s much more to quilting than warm, cozy bedspreads.  Dubrawsky ( Color Your Cloth: A Quilter’s Guide to Dyeing and Patterning Fabric ) begins with a brief, informative description of quilting techniques, from cutting to piecing to hand and machine quilting, then provides a gallery of projects with step-by-step directions.  Dubrawsky’s aesthetic is colorful and vintage-inspired, with fun and functional designs.  The wide variety of small projects and accessories makes this a good choice for beginning quilters who may not feel ready to take on a full-size quil and they’re excellent scrap-bag busters for quilters with a serious stash”. – Library Journal
 
“The brightly coloured cover draws you into this book which aims to rejuvenate home sewing projects through quilting in colourful and bold designs.  This is more of a book aimed towards home decorating, rather than offering any in-depth patchwork or quilting advice.  There are varied projects ranging from quilts to scarves and needle cases, and with a good variety in between.  Each project has diagrams to assist with the design and layout and colour photographs of the finished objects.  But the projects themselves are bright and funky and there is a good variety of patchwork techniques to make them all a little out of the ordinary.  It's not really a book for the art quilter looking for inspiration in colour design, but if you feel your home is lacking in exhibiting your creative output, then some of the projects would most likely be of interest.  However, for the seasoned quilter, this might be a little basic.” - Workshop on the Web

“ A great resource if you want to try quilting for the first time, the projects are inspiring for quilters at any level of experience.  And it's beautifully designed I've picked it up dozens of times just to flip through.  Malka's style involves using a lot of colour and improvisational piecing and in Fresh Quilting she offers techniques and tips for getting comfortable with both.  All of the projects in the book are beautiful.” - thevillagehaberdashery.co.uk

“Quilters looking for a variety of bright, contemporary projects will enjoy this title that includes 20 items ranging from dainty coin purses, coasters and scarves through to bed-sized quilts.  Bags, cushions, baby quilts and fabric books are also included in a vibrant assortment of fabrics that are cheerful and uplifting.  The author's mantra is to inspire the reader to craft the 'little things' because they are often the most cherished and this book reflects her approach to making items for friends, family and home.  Each project is accompanied by full instructions but the book also includes essential techniques for piecing, basting, quilting, binding and finishing.  This is an ideal book for those looking to reduce their stash as many of the projects use a wide variety of prints and colours and the cushion and quilt projects can easily be scaled up or down as required.” - Sewing World
 
"Malka Dubrawsky and Interweave books – what an amazing combination – one of my favourite improv quilters and one of my favourite book publishers all rolled up together: Malka’s stunning colourful designs, combined with Interweave’s attention to detail – love it – and the book delivers! Malka’s quilts and patchwork designs are all about colour and pattern. She dyes and over-dyes her own fabric and combines these in eclectic and clashing and fun ways that are part gypsy and part country but the final result is completely modern! Her stitching may be a bit wonky at times and her corners may not meet up perfectly – but for me that not only adds to the charm of these improv quilts but also the accessibility of her style – she is all about fearless quilting and sewing – just getting in there and doing it. Her fearless style embraces flaws but also discovers new methods, exciting colour combinations and fantastic designs." - Whipup.net
