Fed up with feeling like you can't meet the standards of the Quilt Police? Do you want to quilt for comfort and pleasure - and not to win some high-falutin' quilting contest? Weary of worrying about what others will think of your color choices - or your pieced points? Or your applique stitches?
That Dorky Homemade Look: Quilting Lessons from a Parallel Universe is the quilting companion you've been wishing for. Lisa Boyer, a popular columnist for Quilting Today magazine, gives you permission to quilt because you love it. She clears your path of all those merciless judgments pronounced by the Quilting Queens. She invites you to make quilts that are full of life. This funny book offers nine principles for the 20 million quilters in America such as: 'Pretty fabric is not acceptable. Go right back to the quilt shop and exchange it for something you feel sorry for.' No reason not to have quiltmaking be a pleasure, says Lisa Boyer, who has as firm a grip on her sense of humor as she does on her quilting needles. 144 pages, paperback.
