Review from Popular Patchwork, December 2013

Rose Hughes is a fibre artist based in California, and she has written several books about her clever Fast-Piece Applique technique. Her art quilt designs are striking and do have a unique style; the aim of this book is to encourage the reader to learn how to build their own similar quilt designs. Rose dissects her own designs, gives lot of practice sketch exercises and includes 10 step-by-step projects to help you on your way. Her five basic design elements - line, shape, texture, colour and space - are explained thoroughly and illustrated with the accompanying projects. This isn't a general quilt design book as it is very much focused on creating art quilts based on Rose's own, but there are many helpful hints which could be applied in a wider context.
