Summary

As a sequel to her bestselling Contemporary Quilts, award-winning textile artist Sandra Meech delivers another superlative guide for anyone who's ever wanted innovative ideas in quilting. Meech's own work reflects her fascination with the Arctic landscape, but she shows how any quilter can become an artist, using sketchbooks and journals, and taking inspiration from both commonplace and exotic sources as well as art, architecture, and textiles. The photos of finished projects provide fuel for creativity, the expert instructions explain how to turn ideas into reality, and the array of fabulous techniques (surface embellishment, mixed-media, and three-dimensional looks) match the originality of design. Because these quilts deserve to be displayed, tips are provided on how best to showcase the finished items.
