Kight, a self-taught fabric designer and blogger (www.trueup.net), introduces novices to the processes and artistry behind creating patterned fabric. After covering the nuts and bolts of design, including color theory, directional patterns, and types of fabric, Kight describes the process of creating one's own fabrics using both pen-an paper and computer-based design and print the finished design (or hiring someone to print the fabric for you.) Though the audience for the design sections of the book is limited to crafters with an artistic bent, much of the other content will help quilters and sewers make the best possible use of the fabrics in their collections.
