I don't quilt, but I gift this book to non-quilters

This book is a gem. I originally stumbled across it in a bookstore when I was wracking my brain about what to get my mom, who has strong arts and crafts interests. I picked it up and started paging through it, and it was...beautiful. Previously, I had thought of quilting as the tiniest bit dopey: traditional patterns, "country" styles, very little in the way of innovation -- but this book completely turned me around. This is quilting as high art. Some of the quilts took my breath away. I almost kept the book for myself. I still might buy myself a copy.My mom had a more lukewarm reaction to it, along the lines that she probably wouldn't ever use any of the patterns...but I can imagine that the ideas in this book might influenced even her more traditional designs.Since then, I've given this book to both quilters and non-quilters. Anyone with an eye for beauty (especially if they love Monet) will love this book. It's a treasure. You would never guess.

Flowers on the wall

This is a great book when I discover this one it takes my life upside down, and all that i want to do is make this sort of quilts, It is full of color and patterns to use for every quilter. To make splended paintings from fabric on the wall.

This book revolutionizes quilting!

I love traditional quilting, but this book challenged me. My husband bought it for me for my birthday and I was hooked! The thought of "painting with fabric" was a new concept to me. Gai Perry's eye for color is wonderful. I immediately bought her "Impressionist Pallette" book a week later. I highly recommend this book for anyone ready to take on a challenge.
