Book Giveaway: Day Number One
For today's feature presentation, I give you Free Style Quilts, A "No Rules" Approach by Susan Carlson. From the back cover: Discover fun, creative fabric collage. Susan Carlson's incredible quilts of underwater landscapes, floral designs, fish and portraits come to life as she shares her easy, "no rules" fabric collage technique and shows you how to create your own beautiful free-style quilt designs.
I'll tell you, the art quilts in this book are fantastic! Awesome! Beautiful! What I discovered about myself in relation to this book is that when it comes to quilting (and most things in life), I'm more like Mr. Monk. Traditional, orderly; definitely not "no rules" nor "free-style".
For the more artistic and adventurous quilter, this would be a fantastic book--or for anyone who just wants to look at the pictures. I've had this book for years, enjoyed the pictures, and never attempted one project in it.
