"Wow! This is a great tool for quilt makers and artists -- and
those of us who love to play with color, pattern, and design. I
can't wait to get my colored pencils out!"
-- Carolyn Ducey, curator of collections, International Quilt Study Center & Museum
"Brilliant in its approach and execution. Thomas Knauer forces
us to think deliberately about design, but in a way that is easy
and natural. At once intriguing and inspiring, stimulating and
relaxing, this is much more than just a coloring book."
-- Latifah Saafir, Latifah Saafir Studios and co-founder of the Modern Quilt Guild
