Review quote

"I'm a huge fan of Wendy's work as she has such a good eye for colour and shape, giving quilting a fresh, modern feel. This book is filled with beautiful designs from her, and I love that Wendy shares the inspiration behind each one, inspiring crafters to tell their own stories through their work. Plus, she makes quilting so easy! I can't wait to get started on my own contemporary masterpiece."
Yvette Streeter, Editor, Mollie Makes

"Wendy is a self-taught quilter and like many of us learned to quilt the 'long and hard way.' She embraced the rich traditions of quilting, added her unique point of view and in Urban Quilting, shares what she's learned along the way in 10 beautiful quilt patterns. Wendy writes detailed patterns and informs the reader from a historical and personal perspective about each quilt. Urban Quilting is a perfect introduction for beginners and the unique designs will appeal to experienced quilters as well."
Jacquie Gering, author of WALK: Mastering Machine Quilting with Your Walking Foot

"Bold, modern designs and inspiring photography-freshen up both your home decor and quilting repertoire with Wendy's striking style. Clear instructions, detailed diagrams, and plenty of background knowledge make Urban Quilting a must for beginners and patchwork pros alike."
Alice Hadley, Editor - Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine
