Oh I love this book. I am an evolving quilting artists and I first saw this book at the public library and borrowed it from the library on a whim.

I loved this book. It's well written and inspiring. As an art teacher of both college and younger students, I find the approach Deborah Forman takes in presenting the exercises in this book to be appropriate for any age. They are both simple and complex enough to open doors for creative expression on many levels.
