Ruth B. McDowell ––

The Master Piecer Teaches You to Design Unforgettable Art Quilts

• Transform images from nature or your own imagination into multifaceted works of art
• Detailed design exercises, plus illustrated discussions on every step of the design process
• Stunning photos of previously unpublished quilts

If you've mastered the basics of quilting and you're ready to create your own quilt designs, this book is full of techniques and insights that will take you far, far beyond the ordinary. Everything you need to know about pieced design is here: working with focus, depth of field, and scale; using geometry to adapt your images into quilt blocks; and moving from sketches to pieced block diagrams. You'll also learn to select the right fabrics for your quilt, how and when to use borders, and suggestions on teaching Ruth's method.
