About the Author:

Pat Pease started the creative process at an early age, under the guidance of her craftsman father. An art major in college, she made her first quilt about 12 years ago, and hasn't looked back. She lives in Bend, Oregon.

Wendy Hill started making stuff at a very young age, influenced by creative parents. She's published countless magazine articles since her first in 1992, and this is her fifth book with C&T Publishing. She lives in Sunriver, Oregon. wendyhill.net

Review:

Your creativity will blossom when you take the 7 quilt challenges presented in this fabulous book. Discover tools, tricks and techniques to develop your own unique style and improve your know-how. Find design decisions, colour and construction with new twists and ideas in using blocks, whole quilt, stitching, materials and more. This book is full of beautiful quilts that you can make but it is equally full of take-away ideas that you can develop. It's all about discovering the quilt inside you, bringing your creativity to develop your own design. There's even ideas for fabrics you don't like and scrap bag fabrics. The techniques section is superb. The whole book is illustrated with fabulous photos and clear instructions. There's enough ideas here to keep you going for months. In fact, one thing usually leads to another, so you might find enough inspiration here for years. Highly recommended. (yarnsandfabrics.co.uk, 1/28/16)

Challenge yourself to discover your style and increase your design skills! Two American artists offer no specific techniques, but would simply like contribute to the theme of composition and design. Put your own ideas to paper and this book will enable you to achieve them. Both artists also show how the same top may be made in various ways, by bringing other elements to the composition. The different quilts range from more traditional to the more contemporary . They show how the combination of precious fabrics and pretty "raw" materials can be interesting . Be tempted by the novelty and dare to try something unusual. (patCHquilt, Spring 2016)

This is an ideas book, full of original work. It is not a "how to" book. The two authors challenge each other to use unusual materials, try new techniques and explore colour. They want the readers to do the same and suggest a set of rules for such an enterprise. Each quilter shows a finished quilt (they are small pieces) and explains their methods. Materials such as cotton, linen, silk and even hair interfacing are used. There are numerous interesting techniques including set-in squares, inserting bias strips and finishing with different bindings and facings. Surface stitching and raw edge construction add texture. It is adventurous and exciting, I choose it as my Book of the Month. (British Patchwork & Quilting, June 2016)

Thinking outside the box is always good for the mind, whether it's using an unlikely fabric, working collaboratively, reimagining a block or trying a new technique. This book isn't a project book, but an inspirational one, sprinkled with some techniques to help expand your horizons. The two authors work together to showcase their individuality on the creative journey. (American Quilt Retailer, April 2016)

There are many books that give step by step instructions, not this book, but it is inspirational because it does not lead you down a certain path. Rather it gives you a starting point and says "off you go." I have been quilting for some time and get inspiration block every now and then which I'm sure a read of this book will "un-block." I now have ideas running through my head and can't wait to get started. (Janette Hamilton British Patchwork & Quilting, Issue 272)

Sometimes it's hard to break out of a routine on your own―which is where this book comes in. The authors have devised seven quilt challenges that are aimed at helping you design your own quilts. They are with you every step, from giving a different way of looking at things, to covering technical aspects of quiltmaking. Whether done on your own or in a group, you will find yourself expanding your skills including using material you may not have used before, and the lovely photos and helpful examples guide your progress. This is not about quilting as such, but rather about designing and translating your own ideas and style into textile work. (Down Under Textile, 28)
