Fabricadabra - Simple Quilts Complex Fabrics
At last!!! We've all been waiting for Paula Nadelstern to come write a new book and she has - yippee! Below is the description the publisher has put out. Once we have the actual book in hand (oh we can't wait) - we'll provide you with any other additional information. |
Imagine a traditional quilt, its ordinary shapes gift wrapped with intricate fabrics. Celebrated author, teacher, and fabric designer Paula Nadelstern shows you how to design simple but stunning quilts with the help of vivacious fabric prints.
She helps to show you how to analyze fabrics to uncover their piecing potential for color and symmetry. Make your own cutting templates and learn how to get the “seemingly seamless” look made famous by Paula’s kaleidoscopic quilts. Example piecing diagrams show just how easy it is to quilt a visual spectacle.
To sum the book up in her own words - Simple, her definition - "easily understood or done." However it does not mean that it is easy to execute. She just hopes through this book that you will come away with an overall understanding of her piecing concepts. She offers guidelines not specific direction.
