15 Minutes of Play is one of those you books you want to sit down and slowly ingest, and then hurry to the sewing machine to put the ideas into practice. The nature of Victoria’s narrative draws you into the source of her inspiration, and she guides you to find own, and create beautiful quilts.
V shares her methods for “made-fabric”, offers block patterns to inspire quilts of your own design. She has also included many inspirational quilts, many made by others, to give you a feel of how individual the process can be. By playing for just 15 minutes each day, as V suggests, your creative juices are always flowing and ready to create.
V has also issued challenges within the book, which are a great way to jump start your creative process, and consider your quilting fears. For each challenge she has a pep talk for you, and a few questions to guide your creativity.
I recommend 15 Minutes of Play for any quilter with scraps…yep, it’s a keeper!
