Welcome to Books on Monday! Today we are looking at Divide and Design by Lisa H. Calle. This book is a technique book for designing your quilting on your quilts. And, of course, as usual, the link below is an Amazon Affiliate link.
In this book, Lisa Calle walks us through her process for designing the intricate quilting she uses on her quilts. She does pretty intricate quilting (which we already know that I do not picture myself doing!), but she points out that this technique can be used for planning any kind of quilting.
This is a visually beautiful and clean book. It is designed with lots of white space, which means that when you get to the projects the directions go on for many pages but are very easy to use and maybe more difficult to lose your place and do something wrong. Anyway, all that white space is visually relaxing.
Here is what the book includes:
- The Process
- Designing for Appliqué Quilts
- Fabric, Batting, Thread
- Choosing the Right Template
- The Projects – There are five, and I love them all.
- About the Author
I must admit that the cover quilt is what drew me to this book in the first place. Soooooo gorgeous!
This one is a keeper for me. Check it out!
