Intuitive Color & Design: Adventures In Art Quilting
I have her book, and it is one of my favorites. Whenever I need to be inspired or encouraged, I pull it out and read through it once again. I have yet to start her process of design and sketching not sure why I'm not doing this , but I really like her ideas. In the book, she wraps a quilted piece around a 9" square canvas. If that's in the new book, give it a try.

Jean provides you with more design guidelines and new exercises to hone your natural intuitive skills, then she encourages you to go out there and express yourself! Packed with inspiring quilt images, this book walks you through effective approaches to art quilting from journaling your ideas to unifying your design. Includes 9 classroom-tested assignments. These two quilts pay homage to those fish and Jean's memories. The project not only gives you practice cutting and sewing gentle curves, but it is an opportunity to play with color and make the twenty colors flow together throughout. Tiny bits of contrasting color are scattered here and there to create interest in the design. This technique can easily be adapted to a wall quilt as well as being sized to any table.
