Booklist Review

Three new quilting books offer challenges and diversity. Remember bargello? For years needlepointers absolutely thrived on it. Now quilters have taken it up, and with an updated look. Detailed instructions are paramount to creating a lovely product, and there is a great deal of attention given to the production of precise and exact work. Edie gives even a beginner the confidence to begin these expansive projects. Value is a major design element, and it refers to the darkness or lightness of color. Hammond's Designing Quilts instructs quilters to seek variety and use a simple design but a complex palette. Very precise instructions will help all levels of quilt designers create immensely colorful and original results. Special value-determining tools are explained, such as the use of a reducing glass, binoculars, mirrors, and peepholes. Quilt making has always been a device for bringing friends and neighbors closer together. Round Robin Quilts is a catalyst for creating a variety of theme quilts that are especially creative and unique. Introductory remarks give extensive background about album, signature, and other types of friendship quilts. The book is a lot more than a how-to-manual; it covers every conceivable angle of quilt design. With extraordinary photographs, tips, diagrams, and detailed instructions on each page, this is an inspiration for sociable quilters and quilt guilds. ~--Iva Freeman
