Review quote

"Inspired by her admiration for historical quilts, Cherri House presents a fresh combination of traditional and contemporary quilt making in this collection of patterns for what she refers to as glorified utility quilts. After browsing through the images in the book, you will never view an urban scene in the same way. House has a brilliant eye for pulling basic patterns from everyday city sight - the sides of buildings, airport runways, tires, and even barcodes - and transforming them into fabric. She translates these sights into simple, geometric quilts whose patterns are achieved through the repetition of basic shapes and straightforward construction techniques, often sewn together in horizontal rows. While House's easy-to-follow instructions make it possible for quilters to re-create her patterns exactly, she also encourages individuals to interpret the designs loosely and use them as jumping-off points for their own unique work. Whichever approach you take, House's patterns will train you eye to discern the underlying quilt patterns in the most unexpected of places."--Quilting Artsshow more
