The subtitle of this book is Studio Quilting with Mindful Design and that describes the book well.
Carolyn writes about selecting different materials, textures, and substrates combined with playing with the design concepts of line, contrast, scale, emphasis, color, volume and texture and how these selections can impact the end result of the design. There are 8 projects, each with a multitude of color options. Projects range from table runners to full sized quilts. She encourages you to play with design possibilities to create unique quilts of your own.
Carolyn embraces handwork, thoughtful design choices, and experimentation. Even if you never make a quilt from this book, you will enjoy the pictures (like the one below) and the ideas presented.
