Opening up quilting to a variety of creative impulses, Patricia Belyea offers tips on improv quilting—in which designs emerge organically as fabric is cut and stitched—and shares her appealing Quilt Manifesto of five simple rules (one of which is "Break any rule you like"). In styles ranging from elegant to funky, the 14 projects here combine authentic Japanese yukata cottons and contemporary fabrics; each is finished with bold hand-stitching. The quilt-making process is presented in detail, and each quilt shows the irresistible wabi-sabi influence of Japanese design.
