    Have you ever picked up a piece of hand dyed fabric or a batik and seen shapes in the way the color flows? Well, that is the key step in creating the projects in Judi Dains new book “Bold and Beautiful Artful Quilts From Just One Fabric”. Judi’s quilts, and the techniques she uses to create them, will captivate your imagination. The book covers everything you need to know about what to look for when purchasing the fabric, to marking out what designs you see in the fabric. After the piece is marked, you will need to quilt it and there is a terrific chapter on choosing thread. You will need several types of thread for outlining the design elements, quilting the design elements and quilting the background. My favorite lesson on machine quilting the elements was quilting inside the flowers and leaves. The results are stunning and the quilt patterns are well worth the price of the book. After this you will color the quilt using either fabric paints or inks. Just add a little bling with embellishments like rhinestones, beads, buttons and yoyo’s and your project is finished. You will soon master Judi’s techniques by working your way through the five projects included in the book.

    This book is simple and easy to follow and in just a few days anyone can create a wonderful quilt. I have just about zero art talent and had a wonderful time creating what I think is a masterpiece, I am ready to create my next project! I recommend this to anyone who wants to do something with fiber and wants to explore quilt projects that are not pieced or appliqued. It’s wonderful to explore and create other techniques.

    I love, love, love this book. The pictures of the quilts are beautiful, and the instructions (should you want to create one of these beauties yourself) are clear and very helpful. I’m going to try making one of these lovely things myself so I can enjoy my own unique piece of art. If you love quilting and color, this is a great book to check out.
