About the Author:

Carolyn Friedlander is a designer working from her hometown of Lake Wales, Florida, an environment she enjoys for its warm weather, few distractions, and potent community of quilters and crafters. In her work, she draws inspiration from features of the Florida landscape—its long leaf pines, palmettos, water, scrub land, sand—as well as her background in architecture. You can follow Carolyn and her work on her website (carolynfriedlander.com) and blog (carolynfriedlander.com/blog).

Review:

December 2014 How aptly entitled is this book? You really are going to savour not just the stitches but the designs, the whole package. The front cover gives you a good idea of what you get. Contemporary design at its best. Great colourways, fantastic workshops, simple effective design. The contents are split into Line, Contrast, Scale, Colour, Emphasis, Volume and Texture. Techniques, Workbook Pages, Templates and Resources are also included. Every craft book should look as good as this - congrats to the Lucky Spool graphic design team. Everything is clearly laid out with beautiful photography. Everything is easy-to-follow. I want to make every quilt in this book. Carolyn's work deserves this treatment. Find ideas and inspiration to make great quilts. This book is a real keeper, it's an 11 out of 10. It has to be my favourite quilt book of all time. I highly recommend you buy this, it is fantastic. Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts At the core of Carolyn Friedlander's book are eight gorgeous patchwork blocks - the starting point from which she explores the craft that goes into quilt design. Each of the projects is created to demonstrate how different design principles can completely change the outcome of your creation - experimenting with lines, contrast, colour, scale, emphasis, texture and volume to spawn endless ideas from these few blocks. It's a dreamy, inspirational book - but don't doubt the value of these blocks, as they're all more than just a little bit special. The Facing East block is a masterpiece, and we've already seen some quilters create some beautiful projects with this fun, but complex pattern. Quilt Now
