Editorial Reviews

"The projects are at the heart of the book, and Sharpe's energetic color choices are the uniting factor. Those open to free-form stitching will appreciate the freedom inherent in the improvisational techniques presented. While art quilters are the most likely audience for Sharpe's ideas, stitchers and mixed-media artists who incorporate fabric into their work may find this compilation inspiring." --Library Journal "If you are as inspired by typography as we are, Joanne Sharpe needs to be on your radar. Fanciful, fresh, fun, and encouraging are the words that come to mind when looking at her new book." --Generation Q Magazine
