Description
Evocatively designed and atmospherically photographed, the quilt projects and variations in this handsomely produced hardbound treasury are nothing if not inspirational. British domestic diva Jane Brocket, also the author of The Gentle Art of Domesticity, shares her personal experience with you every step of the way, from finding a theme—the quilts here have names like Tulip Field, Ball Gown, Swimming Pool, and Russian Shawl—through searching for just the right fabrics. Brocket offers the basics for beginners; lists her favorite books, blogs, websites, and suppliers; and discusses fabrics by Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs.

"Pick us up off the floor 'cuz we're in love! This book by British quilter, author and blogger Jane Brocket offers pretty and simple quilts, many made with Kaffe and other Westminister/FreeSpirit fabrics, and presents them through gorgeous photography and tons of excellent design instruction. But the best part—besides the quilts, of course—is the text itself. Jane is a wonderful writer, and she deeply explores with us each quilt's genesis: what inspired her, how she approached the designs and what challenges she found along the way. It's a delightful, intelligent look into the process most of us go through when we're playing with our fabric. As a hardcover book, it's perfect for leaving on your coffee table while you decide what luscious project you want to start first. Go get it. Worth every dime."—Quilter's Home
