<P>Certain to launch a quilting revolution, this instructional guide by award-winning art quilter Jane Sassaman uses vibrant color photos and detailed, easy-to-follow recipes to walk readers through her innovative process of selecting and combining colors and prints. Based on basic blocks and minimal piecing, she transforms personality prints into graphically bold quilt masterpieces. Everybody from beginning stitcher to advanced quilter can create these dazzling quilt designs, as the author goes from easy whole-cloth quilts to more intricate-looking, yet easy-to-make, quilts. The book includes 20 years of Sassaman's work and exercises for making nature-inspired quilts. Sassaman takes two fabrics and a few simple shapes and turns them into extraordinary quilts, where the shapes lose their definition, seams disappear, and motifs dissolve into one another. This is the essence of Sassaman style. - (Independent Publishing Group)
