    This review is from: Radiant New York Beauties. 14 Paper-Pieced Quilt Projects (Paperback)
    Valori Wells is a woman of many talents, a photographer as well as a quilter, and with a keen eye for color and line. The designs and colors of her new book featuring the New York Beauty block are absolutely luscious – deep and rich and complex, with a new surprise and delight on every page. This demanding block, like its sister the Mariner’s Compass, presents difficulties in construction (matching points and all that nonsense), but Wells has the answer – paper piecing – and the book provides foundations for the quilt projects and gives permission for their reproduction. The book is sprinkled with “mini-lessons” on specific techniques, and with the author’s photographs, especially of plants, from which she gets many of her inspirations. All I can say after drinking in the beauty in this book is “Wow!”

    As a quiltmaker, I find this publication to be one of the most beautifully creative books I’ve seen in years. I think a friend of mine said it best, “Valori Wells may have gotten a start riding on her mother’s (quiltmaker and author Jean Wells)coattails, but she has definitely come into her own.” Not only are the patterns wonderful, but the creative ideas for quilting patterns are stunning. As an avid reader and lover of all books, I would have enjoyed this book even if I did not make quilts. It would be a colorful addition to the coffee table of any art collector.

    The quilt projects in this book are gorgeous, original, and will inspire any quilter in new directions. Each section is interspersed with helpful mini lessons, paper patterns, quilting designs, and the author’s photographs of nature and radial images that enrich the reader’s understanding of the design process.
