Review - Listen to Your Quilt by Barbara Persing
Listen to Your Quilt: Select the Perfect Quilting Every Time - 4 Simple Steps by Barbara Persing is a book for quilters who already know how to free motion quilt and want to make better quilting choices. There are no projects, but the author has listed the pattern sources for many of the quilts pictured.
What I like most about her four step plan is that it's not a list of rules telling you what you should do with your project. Instead, it explains how to make your choices based on the type of quilt, the intended use of the quilt, and the fabrics used.
The photos of quilts and close ups of the quilting are as inspiring as a trip to a quilt show. There's a wide selection of children's quilts, traditional quilts, contemporary quilts, and art quilts.
C&T Publishing provided me with an electronic review copy of this book.
