Book Review: Simply Stunning Woven Quilts by Anna Faustino
Do you remember cutting and weaving strips of coloured construction paper together to make designs or little baskets and such when you were in elementary school? Anna has very cleverly and imaginatively taken that idea and transferred it to fabric. She uses her method in two ways – to create complete or partial backgrounds and to create wonderful geometric designs. Her quilts are absolutely stunning! Be sure to visit her website to see her work.
Anna’s book includes step by step directions accompanied by colour photos and illustrations. With her woven backgrounds, there is no worrying about matching seams, corners or points. There are photos and cutting diagrams for making 26 quilts and an attached, full-sized, pattern page. You can make some or all of them and then go on to make your own creations. Anna’s book will create a whole new world of quilting for you!
This book was a finalist in the National Best Books 2008 Awards Crafts/Hobbies/How-To category!
Simply Stunning Woven Quilts can be purchased through Amazon where you can take a peek inside the book.
