In this tutorial I pinpoint the number of ways I use fabrics to do the "heavy lifting" in my quilts. Fabrics, and the prints and patterns on them, can enhance shapes and designs and reinforce ideas. Understanding the many ways your fabrics can be used can help you get the most out of your fabric purchases and make your quilts more creative, interesting and fun.
There are no patterns or exercises. It is 62 colorful pages long, a careful, step by step exploration of my many strategies to explore and use fabrics to create beautiful combinations and explanations of why the fabric I used was chosen to communicate ideas I wanted to convey.
Whether it's free pieced letters, houses, birds or traditional patchwork designs, this tutorial is a great investment in learning how to see fabric, color and pattern to create more beautiful quilts.
