Design Explorations for the Creative Quilter


When I tell my husband that ďIíll be in my cave with KatieĒ, he knows exactly what Iím up to. My cave is my quilting studio and the Katie I refer to is Katie Pasquini Masopust, one of the worlds most dynamic and vibrant quilters.

Iíve got to know Katie through her previous publication Color and Composition for the Creative Quilter which she wrote together with Brett Barker. So when her latest publication titled Design Explorations for the Creative Quilter came under my radar, I had to have a look and see whether she has been able to bring to the viewer the same freshness and easy to understand concepts of designing within quiltmaking, in this new publication. Well, I must tell you that not only has Katie achieved to continue her patient explanation of her ideas, but the illustrations and photographs speak clearly for themselves.

This book is like a very good bottle of red wine. It needs to be opened, sampled, then left stand for a while, whilst the reader absorbs each delicious page of concept, theory and details.

The first few chapters of this incredible publication gives a review of the principles and elements of design and then in the further thirty odd pages, Katie explores shapes, lines, details, repetition, Blind painting and
watercolour painting. Is your mouth watering yet?

And as if thatís not enough, Katie then takes the reader through the process of Design through to Pattern. As with other Pasquini Mosopust publications, a number of vignettes are included, to explain elements that are mentioned in the text. For instance, Enlarging your Design is explained extremely well, including a very clear explanation of the use of the Proportional Scale Wheel that many quilters have purchased, and may be (like me), not completely understood how to use.

C&T Publishing, Inc is continuing to bring to quilters all over the world the most comprehensive range of expert craftspeople who are able to communicate extremely effectively their passion for quilting and pass on to readers their approach, style and method that enables them to achieve the creation of phenomenal quilts. I happily recommend this publication Design Explorations for the Creative Quilter to quilters, where ever they might be traveling in their journey of quilting.
