Back Cover Information

Make Quilts the fun colorful folk-art way!
Cultivate the creative side of appliqué and quilting with inspiration from master folk artist Kristina Becker! Kristina's playful portrayals of cats, birds, and more neighborhood friends will help you tell your own stories in cloth, using imagination as a starting point. Forget everything you thought you knew about accuracy and coordinating colors - it's time to have fun with your fabric and patterns!

  • 5 whimsical appliqué projects let you try out Kristina's methods.
  • A gallery of 17 colorful folk-art quilts to warm your heart, tickle your funnybone, and inspire your creativity.
  • Learn how to personalize basic pattern pieces and layouts for one-of-a-kind quilts.
  • Suitable for all levels of experience - a great place for novices to begin and a perfect jumping-off point for seasoned quilters.

"Kristina Becker's quilts knock my socks off. After seeing this book I felt giddy with delight. What a joy!."
Freddy Moran
Artist, author, teacher

"Come Listen to My Quilts is a beautiful visual lesson in the use of color and fabric. Kristina's quilts are a joy to behold!"
Roberta Horton
