Got Art?


Color and Composition for the Creative Quilter
By Katie Pasquini Masopust and Brett Barker
C&T Publishing, 2005
Paperbound, 80 pages, suggested retail $24.95

Are you ready to break out of the lockstep of repeating traditional blocks, but afraid to try your wings in the intimidating and uncertain realm of art quilts? Well Katie Masopust and Brett Barker have put together a set of beginner art lessons for quilters that will take you a long way down the road to the kind of creativity you’re seeking. Line and shape, value and color, focal point and perspective are all covered here in a quilter’s context that’s friendly and appropriate to the context of textile art. At the same time, these principles and pointers apply to other arts, such as paper art and even painting and drawing. This is an excellent starter text, full of detailed drawings and examples, for the aspiring art quilter.
