I’m so lucky to be Katie Pasquini Masopust’s Editor. It’s so inspiring working on her books!
Her new book, Inspirations in Design for the Creative Quilter: Exercises Take You From Still Life to Art Quilt is no exception.
Katie begins by explaining how to set up an all-white still life that is the starting point for the explorations in the book. The still lifes are easy to set up using every-day items that you paint white.
I was totally amazed by how many different approaches there are to using the still lifes as a starting point for a design: contour drawing, painting with shadows, repeat, and more.
I think one of my all-time favorite Katie quilts is Dancing, created using the fast blind contour drawing method. And I love how she shows the steps she used to create the quilt.
In addition to Katie’s stunning work, the book includes many student works showing how successful anyone can be by following Katie’s instructions. Be inspired!
