[a:]Ruth McDowell’s [b:Fabric Journey|1324426|Fabric Journey An Inside Look at the Quilts of Ruth B. McDowell|Ruth B. McDowell|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1182762521s/1324426.jpg|1313836] is another recent acquisition. She is, without a doubt, my favorite quiltmaker. [a:Jane Sassaman|781936|Jane Sassaman|http://www.goodreads.com/images/nophoto/nophoto-U-50x66.jpg] and [a:Judy Martin|21616|Ann M. Martin|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1208461887p2/21616.jpg] run a close second, but I love Ms. McDowell’s nearly exclusive use of piecing and her nearly exclusive use of commercial fabrics. She really teaches, and demonstrates in her quilts, the extraordinary things that a quiltmaker can do with piecing and celebrates good technique. [b:]Fabric Journey gives insight into several of Ms. McDowell’s quilts. Ms. McDowell discusses several of her quilts, the inspiration, the use of fabric and various piecing techniques. This is not a pattern quilt per se, but the reader can use the descriptions to create their own designs. Again, Ms. McDowell does not condescend to the reader. She gives the impression of assuming that, with practice, anyone can piece the way she does.
