by Jane Brocket
Inspired by Everyday Beauty, Jane Brocket has the knack for turning the simple into the sublime. She shares her personal experience with you every step of the way - from her dreams about days gone by, through the search for the perfect fabrics, to how she designs a quilt to convey a mood or sentiment. As this book is about the inspiration Jane asked Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs - a couple of her favorite fabric designers about their sources of inspiration, and how they translate into the fabrics that we see. The photos of her 15 quilts in delightful natural settings make you want to step right into the picture. Jane's instructions are descriptive and straightforward; quilters and non-quilters alike will be enticed and enchanted by every project. Design tips will help you build confidence and learn how to discover extraordinary ideas in ordinary things. Fabrics used in making of Jane's quilts were designed by Kaffe Fassett, Philip Jacobs, Amy Butler, Ro Gregg, Alex Anderson, Denyse Schmidt, Jennifer Paganelli, Martha Negley, and many other wonderful designers.
