Michelle Watts were inspired by the timeless motifs of the American Southwest. The influences of culture, landscape, color, and design come together to play a key role in the creation of this imaginative collection of quilt designs. Concise instructions and abundant step-by-step illustrations make the projects easy for everyone to follow. The intricate and seemingly complicated pieced designs require only one or two very simple and familiar piecing techniques. The applique designs can by made with the popular quick-fusing technique. The book features pieced and appliqued projects. Many of the designs are presented in different sizes and colorways. Quilters can choose between the rich and subtle color schemes of the desert landscape and alternative schemes in bright, vibrant colors. The quilts are accompanied by sumptuous photographs of the traditional and contemporary pottery, jewelry, and woven textiles that inspired the designs. The featured project, Midnight in Santa Fe, is a medallion-style quilt. It is actually five projects in one, depending on how many of the borders are included in the finished quilt.
