Written by an artist known for her bold designs celebrating the miraculous beauty of garden flowers and plants, this book includes 60 nature-inspired quilts. Taking the reader through two projects, Jane Sassaman explains how to use basic materials to create a beautiful quilt. Designed for budding quilt artists, this book is for anyone ready to learn about quilting, and works as a good text to explain quilting to others. It would be difficult to tackle much of the content of this book without the assistance of an instructor. A beautiful book, The Quilted Garden will inspire many to consider quilting as an art form and an expressive medium.
