The colors of this book drew me in from the start. I love the combinations of the batik designs. The photography from Bali adds depth to the story behind the quilts. It brings to life the culture and majesty of this land that is rich in tradition and craftsmanship.
Pamela Mostek was asked to give a textile tour to Bali. So she brought her traveling companion Susan Nelsen with her and the rest is history.
Follow Pamela and Susan as they talk about the weaving methods used to create the unique batik patters.
There are eight gorgeous patterns to delight quilters of all levels of skill. A keeper for my library shelf.
My rating is 5 out of 5.
Good book for learning to quilt.
This book was sent to me for an honest review. Rating: 4 out of 5.

Part of the humor in this situation is she taught me to cable with a hot roller clip. You know, the metal clip that holds the roller on your head? Yep. That would be it. No cable needles for me. It worked too. Not heavy at all and you just flop the clip to the side to work the cable. Love it.
Has anyone got any other cable hints for my next project? Would love to hear them. :)

I hate knotted yarn. Black knotted yarn especially. It is moments like these where I really have to wonder about that whole knitting so I don't kill people thing. Black knotty yarn that sticks together is definitely not therapy. It is a sanity reducing mess. Grrr.
