Reviewer: Quilting Arts Magazine from USA
Sharing her secrets for striking and expressive free-motion quilts, Judy Woodworth takes readers through her entire process--from inspiration to finished quilt--with 62 quilting patterns, 19 examples, easy-to-follow instructions, and many tips and tricks along the way. Close-up photographs of Woodworth's detailed stitching are combined with clear descriptions on how to translate simple sketches and doodle drawings into intricate free-motion designs, pulling inspiration from a variety of sources. Woodworth derives her own designs from careful observation of the world and she provides candid insights on how to unlock the quilt design potential hidden in the nuance of everyday life. She firmly believes quilters should stop second-guessing their drawing skills, and that no matter their artistic skill set, everyone has innate drawing potential, perfect for translating to free-motion quilt designs.--Ellen Seeburger, Quilting Arts Magazine, April/May 2011, page 81.
