Before I ever pieced my first quilt, I went to State Fairs and quilting art shows to admire the quilts of others; to see hands-on the various techniques and artistry. As a deliberate librarian, I researched many books for years to find my style, thus creating the foundation for the quilts I now make.

This is the basic quilt book every artist should own. If you are a block-maker, it is required. However, it is not my style.
