Whether the family cat is caught in a tree or you're celebrating a special birthday... "life happens minute by minute." This is the theme which Mary Mashuta weaves through her book as she shows us how to capture events from our lives in quilts. She describes how to select topics, collect ideas and fabrics, and use traditional blocks to begin a narrative quilt design. She presents 32 examples of stories from her students' and her own life, as well as a chapter on design - drafting, creating images, using grids, showing blocks in perspective, incorporating photographs, and using theme fabric. The book finishes with how-tos for some of the special techniques.
