Controlled improvisation in piecing with a unique quilt-as-you-go design using circles to make a Circle of Life. Discover traditional inspiration, basic instructions on quilting and exciting projects. There are nine projects – each one has an explanation of how it came about with inspiration and interpretation, fabric requirements, cutting, piecing, assembly, finishing and binding. This book is full of innovative takes on a tree of life theme including tree quilts, coral, a spider’s web and more. There are some suggestions for changing the quilts but these are not explored visually. Full colour photos and illustration throughout. I liked this a lot and would make several of the quilts or adapt them.
Trisch Price ––
Featuring modern interpretations of timeless quilts
Tree of Life quilts are timeless and varied in style. In her newest book, Trisch Price has reinterpreted the concept to create 9 fresh and innovative quilts. The quilts span a wide range of designs and techniques, and interpretations are broad, from trees to other life-sustaining habitats, such as coral, spider webs, and even our technological world. The designs allow you to try your hand at improvisational piecing, including a unique quilt- as-you-go design that employs circles rather than the traditional blocks. Price also includes an explanation of each quilt’s interpretation, ideas on how to change it, and special finishing techniques.
