Internationally-known, award-winning quilter Philippa Naylor has penned an autobiographical book detailing her extraordinary career as a quilt artist and teacher. Philippa is known for her intricate- ly designed quilts and her fans will find that same kind of meticulous detail in Quilting in the Limelight! Inside the pages of this vibrant, full-color book she shares all her secrets that will inform, inspire and instruct quilters. The personal history Philippa recounts provides great insight into her development as a quilt artist. As a child in England fascinated with sewing clothes for her dolls, Philippa grew up to enter the fast-paced, high-pressure world of fashion design. When she took quilting class on the suggestion of a friend, she never looked back. The author chronicles her journey from making quilts for fun, for herself, to making larger, more labor-intensive pieces to be exhibited. As she explains, it all evolved organically. From using someone else's traditional patterns to creating her own unique patterns, she moved on to creating templates for each pieced section of her quilts. Philippa's strong, dramatic quilt designs attract attention from a distance but also draw viewers in to see the fine work involved. As the bright detail.

The words "quilt as desired" make most quilters shudder just before they place yet another unstitched quilt top high on the shelf. With this enhanced quilt-as-you-go method, you will learn many different ways to create and then quilt free motion and linear patterns on small sections before you add them to the main body of your quilt. This novel approach to quilt making allows for a wealth of design opportunities to employ in your projects. Working with improvisation, it is a choose-your-own adventure with no master plan. Instead, we start with an inspiration, a gathering of materials to embrace the theme, and a set of design guidelines for each project. Instead of piecing whole backs, squaring up large pieces, and neck-straining quilting, you will learn new ways to make each section more manageable through techniques that are as simple or as involved as you wish. Rather than getting bogged down by seeing "quilt as desired," you'll soon learn how to Quilt As Inspired.
