Both theory and hands-on technique are discussed, and the opening chapters guide the reader through the basic considerations of design, composition, and color schemes, as well as how to find inspiration in your everyday surroundings. Loughman leads readers step-by-step through the construction process; however, the author's technical advice goes beyond basic construction to include unusual appliqué shapes, mosaics, beading, fabric painting, and decorative stitching. A variety of binding and finishing techniques are presented at the end. Also included are four specific projects that enable readers to put their new skills to use (a pull-out pattern section includes the full-size patterns for the four projects). Beginning art quilters will no doubt be inspired by Loughman's simple but thorough instructions--as well as the impressive photo gallery of her students' work--while more advanced practitioners may find a new technique to incorporate into their own work.
