The spirit of the Southwestern United States comes to life in this beautifully photographed book of gorgeous quilts inspired by the region. Modern lines and colors meet ancient motifs in the 18 quilts that reflect the color and artistry of the land. Each quilt is artfully photographed on location in one of the five Southwest regions from New Mexico to West Texas.
Along with detailed piecing and quilting instructions, author Kristi Schroeder shares with readers her favorite places to shop, eat, and explore at each destination. Quilters can follow in Kristi's footsteps in search of their own inspiration, or they can immerse themselves in the pictorial journey through some of the most breathtaking landscapes in America. Part travel guide, part sewing book, this adventurous title is a must-have for any quilter who is so moved by their surroundings that they feel inspired to create.
