Page after page of information I couldn't find anywhere else! Review by Tammy

This book is amazing. I devoured it in two days, reading every page and storing away techniques and inspiration for future projects. I have been researching and looking at art quilt techniques for at least the last 2 years with very little success except through Quilting Arts Magazine. Except for 2-3 techniques, the processes are very clear and I have found more information in this one book than in the years of Google searches and magazines I ever looked at. Ways to use different media, projects, mixed media techniques and incorporating real life objects into an art quilt are all presented in a concise and fully understandable text. I recommend to anyone searching for art quilt techniques!
