Review:

"Arkison (Sunday Morning Quilts) draws a dreamscape of quiet afternoons sewing and playing. Her lulling, maternal voice whispers 'slow down.' She pieces together four themes to take it easy: relax, eat, shop, and explore. Before guiding the reader on these personal journeys, she introduces an idea for committed beginners: using 'low-volume' fabrics in which white or a light base dominates any graphics or colors, so there is less contrast in color, value, and scale. In the 'Relax' chapter, she writes: 'True relaxation comes when you concentrate on something other than the stress of real life.' She offers instructions for quilts called 'View' and 'Beach Grass' and for a mat for playing 'button Sudoku.' She presents 'Crossword' and 'Sherbet' quilts in the chapter 'Eat,' as well as apron and napkin patterns; a 'Hugs and Kisses' quilt of X's and O's and a pattern for a wine carrier in 'Shop'; in 'Explore,' the quilt features large-scale pinwheels in many greens. Patterns for a sack and a scarf also reflect that theme. The last section, 'Basics Plus,' covers no-nonsense how-tos. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
