"Author and quilting expert Patricia Belyea offers improv instruction and shares her inspiring Quilt Manifesto of five simple rules. While providing quilters with a starting point, the fifth rule of the Manifesto, 'Break any rule you like,' opens the door to creative freedom. (However, the solid instructions allow even the rule-breakers to create beautiful quilts on the first try). Fourteen projects combine authentic Japanese yukata cottons, contemporary fabrics, and bold hand-stitching. The quilt-making process is presented in detail, and each quilt shows the irresistible wabi-sabi influence of Japanese design."--Page 4 of cover.
