Savor Each Stitch by Carolyn Friedlander
DescriptionStudio Quilting with Mindful Design by Carolyn Friedlander
An exploration of how selecting different materials, textures, and substrates combined with playing with the design concepts of line, contrast, scale, emphasis, color, volume and texture can impact the end result of the design. 8 quilts each with a multitude of color way options, illustrate how each design decision can impact the direction of a quilt. Projects range from table runners to full sized quilts each encouraging readers to play with design possibilities to create unique quilts of their own. Hand quilting, needle-turn appliqué, thoughtful design choices and experimentation replace the fast and easy counterparts found in many pattern books. The author will take readers from sketch, to experimentation, to final result all shot on location in and around her inspirational Florida studio. Carolyn has a loyal following as a successful and established pattern designer, is an award winning quilter, and is a fabric designer for Robert Kaufman.
