This is the third of my books that I chose at Christmas time. It is "Design Explorations for the Creative Quilter" by Katie Pasquini Masopust. I have just started reading it and the design lessons are very intriguing. Many are taken from nature photo details. The lessons explore shape, lines, details, repetition, painting, linear reflections and freeze frame. Then there are lessons on translating design to pattern, construction and finishing.
