As of 2/16 I have read quite a few snippets. One thing I am still enjoying are the large number of illustrations - GOOD illustrations. Almost every page has a lot of illustrations, which I love, especially for the price. I also love the voice that Linda and Laura Kemshall write in. Helping, teacherly and confident, bu also encouraging and not condescending. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0715324500, Paperback)

The only book on the market that deals with the application of color to the quilted surface--a technique that creates completely unique effects. Dyeing, fabric painting and print techniques are an important part of the increasingly popular City & Guilds textile courses. Painted Quilt demystifies the process of coloring cloth using a variety of techniques including fabric paints, pastels, dyes, bleaches and transfers. The book combines simple techniques to produce complex textile surfaces, and describes exactly how these effects are achieved with easy-to-understand step-by-step photographs and instructions. Many people have competent sewing skills but lack the confidence to create their own designs--this book will help them to explore their own creative potential to achieve effective and original designs.
