Quilts from Nature



Author: Joan Colvin

Utilizing a unique sketchbook format, Colvin offers many beautiful examples of quilts inspired by the natural world. Her swans are remarkably graceful, her birds practically sing, and her fish surely swim. Best of all, she is a gifted teacher, forcing the quilter to learn to find movement, contrast, and unity in order to create magical results. This book is quite suitable for both beginners and more experienced quilters. She offers many ideas for developing an end result that combines realism and impressionism. Both template use and rotary cutting are used. For art quilters who want to “work fearlessly with fabric.”
