Product Description

From Amazon

Breathtaking in their nuances and truly astonishing in their evocation of impressionist paintings, Gai Perry's quilts are like no other. Inspired by nature as well as by art, she developed a piecing technique that utilizes squares placed on point and takes advantage of floral motifs and subtle fabric gradations to produce spectacular results. Here she reveals all her secrets for creating these deceptively complex-looking works of art, supporting her instructions with color photos of dozens of her beautiful quilts. --Amy Handy

Format: Paperback
This book is a gem. I originally stumbled across it in a bookstore when I was wracking my brain about what to get my mom, who has strong arts and crafts interests. I picked it up and started paging through it, and it was...beautiful.
Previously, I had thought of quilting as the tiniest bit dopey: traditional patterns, "country" styles, very little in the way of innovation -- but this book completely turned me around. This is quilting as high art. Some of the quilts took my breath away. I almost kept the book for myself. I still might buy myself a copy.
My mom had a more lukewarm reaction to it, along the lines that she probably wouldn't ever use any of the patterns...but I can imagine that the ideas in this book might influenced even her more traditional designs.
Since then, I've given this book to both quilters and non-quilters. Anyone with an eye for beauty (especially if they love Monet) will love this book. It's a treasure. You would never guess.

Walking through Joanne's Fabrics, Gai Perry's book caught my eye. Having never tackled a quilt, I jumped right in and designed my first one based on my mother-in-laws beautiful English Garden at the shore. Using her easy to follow instructions, the wall hanging was a success. Now I'm quilting my interpretation of the Buchart Garden's on Vancover Island in B.C. On the drawing table is a moon light scene over a lake to be done exclussively in blues and purples.
Buy this book, you'll be glad you did when you read about floral fabric selection, mixing and matching, gradations, and on and on. I've peeked at the photos in her 2nd book and can't wait to read it when Amazon ships it.

I love traditional quilting, but this book challenged me. My husband bought it for me for my birthday and I was hooked! The thought of "painting with fabric" was a new concept to me. Gai Perry's eye for color is wonderful. I immediately bought her "Impressionist Pallette" book a week later. I highly recommend this book for anyone ready to take on a challenge.

Traditional quilting somewhat bored me but I love collecting fabrics. Impressionist Quilts challenged me to use them! Ms. Perry takes you step by step through the process of watercolor quilting. This book will teach you more than just quilting but also color theory and design. I can't stop the ideas! I highly recommend this book and can't wait to get her next one!
